Diabetes mellitus imposes considerable premature vascular risks on individuals. In this short review, the well-established concept of multiple risk factors leading to excess diabetes risk is acknowledged, with confirmation of considerable successes in reducing cardiovascular disease (non-fatal more than fatal) risks in diabetes. However, the less well appreciated age differentials in risk, whereby younger-onset type 2 diabetes is shown to be more pathogenic, is better highlighted with a call for more aggressive management in these groups.
