AHA and ADA: CV risk assessment, monitoring essential for patients with type 1 diabetes

August 21, 2014

A greater understanding of the pathophysiology, risk prediction and treatment of CVD in patients with type 1 diabetes is essential to minimize the impact of these interrelated conditions, according to a new scientific statement from the American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association.

“CVD is a long-term complication of type 1 diabetes that is a major concern for patients and health care providers. … Despite the known higher risk of CVD in individuals with type 1 diabetes mellitus, the pathophysiology underlying the relationship between CV events, CVD risk factors and type 1 diabetes is not well understood,” the authors wrote in Diabetes Care.
