Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome are important risk factors for heart disease. Metabolic syndrome is a set of risk factors that includes: abdominal obesity, a decreased ability to process glucose (insulin resistance), dyslipidemia (unhealthy lipid levels), and hypertension. The root cause of most cases of metabolic syndrome can be traced back to poor eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle. Clinical research involves investigations into the molecular, genetic and environmental causes of diabetic cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome. Also includes: diabetic cardiomyopathy and new therapies for diabetic cardiac and vascular disease.
