Abstract

Coronary heart disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in persons with diabetes mellitus. Exercise is an important cornerstone in the treatment and management of diabetes but is also associated with a heightened risk of sudden cardiac death in those with occult coronary heart disease. Before beginning a physical activity program that involves anything greater than moderate intensity exercise, consideration should be given to screening asymptomatic persons with diabetes for silent myocardial ischemia.
