Diabetes mellitus (DM) und die koronare Herzkrankheit (KHK) sind ein „gefährliches Duo“ mit hoher Mortalität und Morbidität. Angesichts der steigenden Prävalenz des DM Typ 2 generell (1, 2) und im Alter (3) sowie der immer älter werdenden Bevölkerung wird die Zahl der zu behandelnden Patienten mit beiden Erkrankungen zukünftig noch weiter steigen. Dieser Artikel zielt daher auf eine kritische Betrachtung der Kombination aus DM und KHK ab. Im Detail sollen folgende Aspekte diskutiert werden:
  1. epidemiologische Aspekt

  2. pathomechanistische Aspekte

  3. diagnostische Aspekte

  4. therapeutische Aspekte
