Diabetes mellitus is associated with a high risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The management of diabetic dyslipidemia, a wellrecognized and modifiable risk factor, is a key element in the multifactorial approach to prevent CVD in individuals with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are associated with marked increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). A greater burden of risk factors is at least partly responsible for the increased risk of CHD in diabetes. Dyslipidemia is a well-recognized and modifiable risk factor that should be identified early to institute aggressive cardiovascular preventive management.
