This study is designed to assess the incidence of cardiovascular events occurred within an 12 month follow up period in type 2 diabetic patients with either high risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) or history of coronary artery disease (CAD) or stroke.
The number of diabetes patients around the world has increased from 30 million in 1985 to the current 180 million, and is expected to grow to 366 million in 2025, with 75 percent occurring in developing countries such as India and China. In China, economic prosperity and changes in diet and lifestyles have resulted in steep increase in prevalence of overweight, obesity, and diabetes. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is associated with an increased risk for both micro-and macrovascular complications, and cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the most common causes of death in these patients. Preventing the onset or the worsening of the cardiovascular diseases is thus one of the most important goals in managing type II diabetes. This study is designed to better understand the incidence of cardiovascular events under current patterns of treatment in type 2 diabetic patients with either 3 or more risk factors for cardiovascular disease such as older age, hypertension, dyslipidemia, etc, or existing or prior history of coronary artery disease and stroke. Approximately 1000 patients from major hospitals across several regions of China will be recruited for this study.

The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
A severe type of hyperlipidemia, sometimes familial, that it is characterized by the elevation of both plasma CHYLOMICRONS and TRIGLYCERIDES contained in VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Type V hyperlipoproteinemia is often associated with DIABETES MELLITUS and is not caused by reduced LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE activity as in HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE I .
Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).
A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
