Introduction [to Journal of Hypertension, Volume 25, Suppl 1]

John Chalmers, Alberto Zanchetti

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


The global epidemic of diabetes is gathering pace, and with it the attendant burden of vascular disease. It is now increasingly recognized that diabetes is at least as much a vascular disease as it is a metabolic disorder, with a wide range of macrovascular and microvascular complications that account for most of the morbidity and mortality, particularly in individuals with type 2 diabetes. The papers presented in this symposium highlight the double jeopardy suffered by patients with type 2 diabetes, both macrovascular and microvascular disease in full measure, and the interaction between abnormalities of large vessels and of the microcirculation in the pathogenesis of the characteristic vascular burden.
