  • Overview

    It is often thought that patients with diabetes have more "silent" heart disease than patients without diabetes: Coronary artery disease is a leading cause of death among these patients. But is screening all asymptomatic patients with diabetes for the condition prudent, or should we exercise caution when considering cardiac screening? Dr. Steven Wittlin, associate professor of medicine and clinical director of the endocrine/metabolism division at the University of Rochester in New York, makes screening recommendations based on the recent Detection of Ischemia in Asymptomatic Diabetics (DIAD) study. Dr. Lee Freedman hosts.
