II Abstract Chronic non-communicable diseases including coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes have become a worldwide epidemic. As of 2002, type 2 diabetes is considered a risk equivalent to coronary heart disease (CHD) in most persons with type 2 diabetes. Both diseases share the same underlying risk factors. In the INTERHEART Study, 9 risk factors have been identified that are relevant in the etiology and prognosis of CHD, accounting for 90% of CHD risk in men and 94% in women. These… Expand

The Role of Lifestyle in Secondary Prevention of Coronary Heart Disease in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes
TLDR
It is concluded that participation in a multicomponent secondary prevention program employing the above interventions may be of benefit not only to CHD patients in general, but in particular to those with CHD and diabetes. Expand
PRIMARY PREVENTION OF CORONARY HEART DISEASE IN WOMEN THROUGH DIET AND LIFESTYLE
A BSTRACT Background Many lifestyle-related risk factors for coronary heart disease have been identified, but little is known about their effect on the risk of disease when they are consideredExpand
Depression and Coronary Heart Disease in Women With Diabetes
TLDR
In this sample of diabetic women, major depression was an independent risk factor that accelerated the development of CHD, and depression recognition and management may improve outcomes from diabetes in this gender subgroup. Expand
Angina pectoris and atherosclerotic risk factors in the multisite cardiac lifestyle intervention program.
TLDR
Improvements in angina in patients making intensive lifestyle changes could drastically reduce their need for revascularization procedures, according to the observed improvements in exercise capacity, depression, and health-related quality of life. Expand
Primary and subsequent coronary risk appraisal: new results from the Framingham study.
TLDR
New sex-specific models from The Framingham Heart Study for primary and secondary CHD have been produced and are useful tools for better understanding the relation between risk factors and the occurrences of CHD events in individuals who are free of cardiovascular disease as well as persons who have had a prior CHD event or stroke.

Nurse-provided or nurse-coordinated care management programs using an integrated or multifactor approach have been highly effective in reducing CVD morbidity and mortality of high-risk persons. Expand
Comparison of coronary risk factors and quality of life in coronary artery disease patients with versus without diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
Patients with CAD and DM are able to follow a comprehensive lifestyle change program and show similar improvements in coronary risk factors and quality of life as those without DM. Expand
Cardiovascular risk reductions associated with aggressive lifestyle modification and cardiac rehabilitation.
TLDR
It is suggested that CVD patients who choose to participate in the Ornish program can experience greater improvements in CVD risks than patients who choice to participation in traditional cardiac rehabilitation or no formal program. Expand
Lifestyle intervention to prevent diabetes: intensive AND cost effective
TLDR
Lifestyle intervention needs to incorporate individualization and repeated long-term contacts with trained facilitators to prevent diabetes and hence its complications from developing. Expand
Physical Activity and Risk for Cardiovascular Events in Diabetic Women
TLDR
Walking may provide a promising way to reduce risk for cardiovascular events among diabetic persons and the relationship between levels of physical activity and incidence of coronary heart disease and stroke among women with type 2 diabetes mellitus in the Nurses' Health Study is examined. Expand
