Purpose of the Workshop

Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death for people with type 1 diabetes, despite improvements in the control of glucose, blood pressure, and lipid levels. The pathophysiology, risk factors, and clinical course of cardiovascular disease in type 1 diabetes have features that are different from those for cardiovascular disease in people with type 2 diabetes or without diabetes, yet most of the clinical recommendations for people with type 1 diabetes are based on studies of these other populations. The goals of the workshop are the following:

  • Review the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis and myocardial infarction in people with type 1 diabetes.
  • Compare and contrast risk factors for cardiovascular disease that are general, diabetes-specific, and type 1 diabetes-specific.
  • Review the clinical presentation and course for acute coronary syndrome and stroke in type 1 diabetes.
  • Discuss and prioritize research questions for cardiovascular disease and type 1 diabetes.
  • Review and discuss the approaches and resources needed to address the high-priority research questions.
