The incidence of mortality from cardiovascular diseases in higher in diabetic patients. The cause of this accelerated cardiovascular disease is multifactorial and, although atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease in association with well-defined risk factors has an influence on morbidity and mortality in diabetics, myocardial cell dysfunction independent of vascular defects have also been defined. We postulate that these adverse cardiac effects could presumably result as a consequence of the… CONTINUE READING
