The risk factors, such as hypertension and metabolic syndrome, tend to promote heart pathology. These risk factors can aggravate concomitant heart insults as well. Diabetes mellitus represents one of the most important risk factors for the development of heart pathology. By itself it represents a source of vascular and heart dysfunction through formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and can compromise the recovery from cardiovascular diseases. This review focuses on the evidence that… CONTINUE READING
