There are many studies documenting that diabetes mellitus is associated with cardiovascular diseases. Diabetes mellitus has a significant role and is an important risk factor in cardiovascular manifestations in patients with diabetes mellitus. Cardiovascular diseases are one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality in diabetic patients. Diabetes mellitus can affect performance, construction, and the anatomy of the heart and vessels. As a result, it can lead to cardiovascular complications, such as left ventricular systolic and diastolic dysfunction, left ventricular hypertrophy, coronary heart disease, peripheral artery disease, myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, and cardiomyopathy. Different mechanisms of diabetes mellitus play an important role in the manifestations of cardiovascular diseases in diabetic patients. Understanding of these mechanisms can help physicians recognize, prevent, and treat the associated cardiovascular complications of diabetes mellitus. A detailed investigation of cardiovascular complications and diseases might be significant in the prognosis of diabetic patients and can be useful in managing and treating such patients.
