A word from our Editor-in-Chief

Guest Editorial

Diabetes Mellitus is rapidly increasing throughout the world especially in the developing countries. DM-2 is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases increasing the risk by 2-3 folds. As DM-2 and CVD are closely related a new branch of medicine called Diabetocardiology has started. This issue of the journal discusses some of the current issues of diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular system. The state of the art article on epidemiology of diabetes mellitus in India suggests that diabetes mellitus is rapidly increasing in different parts of the country due to unhealthy lifestyles. It also stresses that there is a rising prevalence in the youth. A review article discusses diabetic dyslipidemia which is very frequently present in diabetics. Different guidelines have been discussed and newer drugs to control high triglycerides are discussed. The article on hypertension and diabetes discusses its relationship and also need to control blood pressure to prevent complications. Benefits of different drugs especially ACE inhibitors and ARBs are discussed. It has been stressed for a long period that diabetes is a coronary heart disease equivalent. The review article on diabetes and coronary heart disease discusses this aspect critically. The last article is on prevention of micro and macro vascular complications of diabetes. Multifactorial intervention which involves pharmacological therapy targeting hyperglycemia, hypertension, dyslipidemia and microalbuminuria, low dose aspirin along with lifestyle modifications including exercise, dietary adjustment, smoking cessation and stress control are highlighted in this article. In profiles in preventive cardiology a brief biography of Dr. Rury R Holman is presented. Prof. Holman is the first Professor of diabetic medicine at the University of Oxford and has done pioneering work in various facets of diabetes. He has several research studies to his credit including the famous UKPDS trial.
We hope that this issue will be useful to the practicing clinicians.
