• Cardiovascular risk reduction in the diabetic patient
This monograph, Cardiovascular risk reduction in the diabetic patient, is offered as part of a series of continuing medical education programs from the University of Florida College of Medicine. Coeditors are Carl J. Pepine, MD, University of Florida College of Medicine and James R. Sowers, MD, State University of New York Downstate.
The monograph discusses new research into the impact of diabetes on vascular pathophysiology and the interaction between the endocrine and renin-angiotensin systems. Clinical data relevant to management of hypertension, dyslipidemia, and other risk factors in the diabetic patient are also discussed with regard to the relative roles of ACE inhibitors, antiplatelet agents, ß-blockers, calcium antagonists, and lipid-lowering agents.
