As reported by the International Diabetes Federation, over half a billion people worldwide have diabetes. Complications associated with diabetes include macrovascular conditions, such as coronary heart disease and stroke, and microvascular conditions, such as retinopathy and kidney disease. Such complications continue to pose a burden on the individuals living with diabetes, and cardiovascular complications remain the most common cause of mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes. Screening people with type 2 diabetes for cardiovascular risk is an important strategy for reducing mortality and cardiovascular disease events.
