Diabetes mellitus, particularly non-insulin-dependent diabetes Type 2, is a common disease and, even though insulin has been around for seventy years, this endocrine disorder still reduces the life expectancy of diabetic patients because of the development of long-term complications, including hypertension. Hypertension occurs twice as often in diabetic patients as in non-diabetic ones. The combination of diabetes and hypertension creates a greater risk of coronary artery disease which is the major cause of death in westernized societies. Bryan Williams and his international team of collaborators provide the reader with their views for treatment of diabetes associated with hypertension and the prevention of subsequent coronary artery disease and other disorders.
