This book Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease addressing dyslipidemia and hypertension, which are particularly prevalent in diabetes, and utilizing evidence-based therapies for their management that optimize CVD risk reduction are key in reducing morbidity and mortality associated with the CVD consequences of diabetes. In addition, understanding strategies to prevent or control chronic kidney disease, a very important condition that greatly increases CVD risk in those with diabetes is of key importance. Further understanding how to best detect atherosclerosis and other subclinical CVD through advanced imaging and other novel strategies in those with diabetes to maximize and motivate better opportunities for prevention of clinical CVD is invaluable to identifying those at highest risk. Finally, understanding key quality of care, provider and medical system factors, and how to impact them to best improve coordinated management of diabetes in the healthcare setting is of paramount importance to address the diabetes epidemic facing much of our world today. Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease will lend an important perspective into better understanding these key issues involved in the connection between these two important conditions and to better motivate researchers and clinicians in primary care, endocrinology, and cardiology to collaborate together on local, national, and international efforts to improve the CVD risks and consequences associated with diabetes.
