Figure 10 Flow diagram indicating that most diabetic patients with three-vessel disease undergo CABG and that the choice of revascularization strategy is influenced by multiple factors including proximal LAD disease, lesion complexity, and other clinical features.

revascularized diabetic patients, the recommendations of the consensus panel for annual cardiac testing in diabetic patients at increased risk may be a reasonable compromise (Table 2) (9), and the documented efficacy of SPECT myocardial perfusion studies has led to the use of this method in many centers (13,14). Further studies of these issues to include an analysis of cost effectiveness of routine follow-up testing in diabetic patients are clearly needed. Aggressive medical and lifestyle measures are essential and discussed below.

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body uses food. Normally, your body converts sugars, starches and other foods into a form of sugar called glucose. Your body uses glucose for fuel. The cells receive the glucose through the bloodstream. They then use insulin a hormone made by the pancreas to absorb the glucose, convert it into energy, and either use it or store it for later use.
