Abstract

The incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus is rising, which increases the demand for cardiovascular prevention treatments. This situation raises an important question: should all individuals with this disorder be considered to have a high risk of cardiovascular events and be treated with preventative therapy, such as statins, or should risk-prediction regimens be used to guide therapy?
