[Favorable effects of decreasing lipids in patients with diabetes mellitus].
Dtsch Med Wochenschr 2006; 131 Suppl 8:S252-4DM

Abstract

Patients with diabetes mellitus are patients at high risk for cardiovascular events. There is only limited number of studies examining the effects of lipid lowering specifically in diabetics. The majority of evidence is derived from subgroup analyses of large intervention trials. Patients with diabetes mellitus benefit from a therapy with statins, independently from the starting LDL cholesterol concentrations. Furthermore, recent studies strongly suggest that for high risk patients such as diabetics regarding LDL "the lower is the better" The data for the benefits of fibrate therapy is not as robust as those available for statins. Therefore, at present no specific recommendation for treatment of diabetics with fibrates can be made.
