Advances in research have shown that diabetes mellitus includes a constellation of related conditions, including central obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, inflammation, impaired glucose tolerance Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT) is a pre-diabetic state of dysglycemia, that is associated with insulin resistance and increased risk of cardiovascular pathology. IGT may precede type 2 diabetes mellitus by many years. IGT is also a risk factor for mortality. and hypertension, all of which contribute to the development of cardio-diabetes. These nine papers detail causes and outcomes of cardio-diabetes, including the role of simple hyperglycemia hyperglycemia: see diabetes. in the pathobiology pathobiology /patho·bi·ol·o·gy/ (-bi-ol´ah-je) pathology.
