Prevalence of coronary artery diseases in diabetic patiens is high. The risk of the cardiovascular complications increases in concordance with higher glycosylated hemoglobin. Treatment of the hyperglycemia, dyslipidemia and hypertension is preventive of the cardiovascular complications.

Key words:
diabetes mellitus, coronary artery diseases, oral antidiabetics, insulin.
