Background: Clinicopathological correlations, as well as several angiographic studies, suggest that diabetic patients have more extensive atherosclerotic disease, affecting the coronary arteries in particular. We sought to examine the combinational effect of cardiac and biochemical markers in diabetic patients with cardiovascular disease. Method: The study population constituted 50 healthy subjects, 50 cardiovascular subjects with diabetes and 50 cardiovascular subjects without diabetes. The population was subjected to biochemical and cardiac marker analysis and the results were verified. Results and discussion: Studies suggest that glycated hemoglobin values in the abnormal range can identify persons at increased risk for coronary heart disease, stroke, and death before the diagnosis of diabetes, indicating that glycated hemoglobin is a useful marker of cardiovascular risk and death from any cause.
