Dyslipidemia in Noninsulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus

  • Lisa A. Kosmiski

Part of the Contemporary Biomedicine book series (CB, volume 15)


Noninsulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) is a common metabolic disorder familiar to most physicians. Its complications and associated conditions are numerous and require much attention from both caregivers and patients. On the surface, dyslipidemia in diabetes may seem relatively inconsequential to the wellbeing of these patients. However, the high prevalence of coronary artery disease (CAD) in the NIDDM population mandates careful attention to any factors that may play a role in its development. In our opinion, the lipoprotein alterations that accompany NIDDM play a major role in the development of coronary atherosclerosis, and so are indirectly an important cause of morbidity and mortality in the NIDDM population. Therefore, this chapter will focus primarily on the relationship between diabetic dyslipidemia and CAD.
