Cuando nos enfrentamos a la diabetes mellitus (DM) y a la insuficiencia cardíaca (IC) nos encontramos con dos patologías que presentan aspectos en común. Uno de ellos es la alta prevalencia que existe en la población general. A su vez, la DM se postula como un factor de riesgo independiente para el desarrollo de IC, no sólo por los efectos de la hiperglucemia sostenida sino por el conjunto de comorbilidades asociadas que elevan el riesgo de estos pacientes de desarrollar cardiopatía isquémica y fallo cardíaco.

El objetivo del presente estudio es realizar una revisión de la diabetes y la hiperglucemia como un fenómeno que promueve el desarrollo de insuficiencia cardíaca.
