Totowa, NJ 25 26 He, Naruse, and King tance, which often precedes NIDDM, are risk factors for CAD. Several studies have shown that patients with NIDDM treated with insulin have a higher risk of CAD than those without insulin therapy, suggesting that severity of disease; loss of islet cell functions, or exogenous insulin treatment may also have an impact on CAD. The influence of diabetes on CAD is synergistic with other factors, such as age, hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, and smoking. Additionally, diabetes itself is also an independent risk factor (2,8–10).
