Advances in research have shown that diabetes mellitus includes a constellation of related conditions, including central obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, inflammation, impaired glucose tolerance 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 in the pathobiology of diabetic complications such as cardio-diabetes, endothelial dysfunction in glucose metabolism (normal and abnormal), interleukins and matrixins as biomarkers and therefore diagnostic agents in cardiovascular conditions related to diabetes, arterial elasticity and hypertension as they relate to metabolic syndrome and diabetes, metabolic syndrome in patients with acute coronary syndrome, impaired glucose metabolism and cerebrovascular diseases, the next steps after statin monotherapy for combined dyslipidemia, and non-insulin antidiabetic therapy in cardiac patients. The editors include a subject index.
