People with diabetes are two to four times more likely to develop cardiovascular disease. Insulin resistance, which leads to diabetes in 1 in 4 people who have it, affects 60 million Americans and is also a cardiovascular disease risk factor. It is important for cardiologists to understand the reasons why diabetes and insulin resistance cause increased cardiovascular risk so they can help their patients control these risk factors.
