Abstract

Prevention of diabetes represents an important therapeutic goal in current cardiovascular risk reduction strategies. Blockade of the renin–angiotensin system has been shown to markedly reduce the incidence of new-onset diabetes in different patient populations. Recent results from three large clinical endpoint trials with the angiotensin-II receptor blocker telmisartan regarding new-onset diabetes, atrial fibrillation, and left ventricular hypotrophy will be discussed.
