Example text

Of course, particular care must be taken in the use of statins in women of childbearing potential. Most guidelines do not differentiate between T1DM and T2DM in their use of lipid-lowering therapies in primary prevention of CVD. However, it should be noted that people with T1DM do not share the same lipid profile as those with T2DM (which is associated with low concentrations of high-density lipoprotein (HDL)cholesterol and high concentrations of small dense atherogenic LDL-cholesterol). Glycaemic control and macrovascular disease A 1% reduction in HbA1c is associated with a reduction in the risk of myocardial infarction by 14%.

Practically, this has meant the widespread prescribing of statin therapy in everyone with T2DM over the age of 40, irrespective of their starting lipid levels. Statin use in patients under the age of 40 is still recommended for those at highest CVD risk. Of course, particular care must be taken in the use of statins in women of childbearing potential. Most guidelines do not differentiate between T1DM and T2DM in their use of lipid-lowering therapies in primary prevention of CVD. However, it should be noted that people with T1DM do not share the same lipid profile as those with T2DM (which is associated with low concentrations of high-density lipoprotein (HDL)cholesterol and high concentrations of small dense atherogenic LDL-cholesterol).

The peak incidence (3% per annum) occurs after diabetes has been present for 10–20 years; the incidence declines thereafter. Initially, diabetic nephropathy is associated with an increased glomerular filtration rate (GFR). As nephropathy progresses, the GFR decreases and microalbuminuria (30–300 mg of albumin/ day) develops. Macroalbuminuria (>300 mg of albumin/day) and hypertension then follow as the GFR falls below the normal range. Without specific interventions, ∼80% of people with T1DM and 20–40% of people with T2DM with microalbuminuria will progress to overt albuminuria.
