Abstract

The secondary complications of diabetes are the major factors limiting quality of life and longevity in diabetic patients. Among these complications, cardiovascular disease is the major cause of morbidity and mortality. Based on a recent paper by Vikramadithyan et al. (2005), this preview addresses the role of aldose reductase as a contributor to the pathogenesis of diabetic macrovascular disease.
