Abstract

The reduction of macrovascular disease in NIDDM requires an organised package of diabetes education, self-monitoring of blood glucose, and screening for aggressive management of concomitant macrovascular risk factors. As stated by Savage: 'Until definitive guidelines for prevention are established, combining aggressive therapy for known cardiovascular disease risk factors with efforts to normalise the glucose level offers the best chance to reduce the higher risk for cardiovascular disease associated with NIDDM.
