Cardiovascular disease affects a larger percentage of people with diabetes than people without diabetes. “And patients with diabetes have a two- to sixfold higher risk of mortality from cardiovascular events compared with those without diabetes,” says Richard W. Nesto, MD, a cardiologist from Burlington, Massachusetts, who has treated and researched the link between CVD and type 2 diabetes for more than 30 years. “That connection is certainly one that cannot be ignored,” says Martin J. Abrahamson, MD, an endocrinologist from Boston, Massachusetts, who has treated patients with diabetes for more than 3 decades. Here, Abrahamson and Nesto discuss the epidemiology of type 2 diabetes and CVD, as well as the mechanisms that drive accumulated cardiovascular risk over time.
