Diabetes mellitus (DM) retains its value as one of the most important cardiovascular risk factors in both the general population and patients with verified cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, the assessment of an individual risk for cardiovascular events in DM is a subject of scientific debate. The possibility of stratifying patients with DM into groups at risk for poor prognosis, by using biological markers, is considered.
