Bidirectional impact of two chronic diseases: heart failure and diabetes mellitus
El impacto bidireccional de dos enfermedades crónicas: insuficiencia cardíaca y diabetes mellitus
Heart failure remains a significant burden to healthcare systems. Even of the advances in medical therapy, heart failure morbidity and mortality have not been significantly reduced. Diabetes mellitus has shown to be a significant risk factor for the development and prognosis of heart failure. Traditionally, these two chronic illnesses have been managed in relative isolation. Clinicians should be more cognizant of the bidirectional impact between heart failure and diabetes.
