A strong correlation between cardiovascular disease and diabetes is now well established. The American Heart Association considers that individuals with insulin resistance or diabetes are more likely to fall victim to heart disease or stroke. Cardiovascular Diabetology is the world’s foremost journal specifically devoted to this issue. Submitted manuscripts may report any aspect of laboratory, animal, or human research related to diabetes and its cardiovascular complication.
