Abstract

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in people with type 2 diabetes. People with diabetes have substantially higher short-term (30 days) and long-term (up to 10 years) mortality rates after acute myocardial infarction, than people without diabetes. The reason behind this higher mortality rate is not completely understood. Cardiac rehabilitation post myocardial infarction has been shown to be beneficial in non-diabetic patients in reducing both morbidity and mortality. Research investigating the effectiveness of cardiac rehabilitation for people with diabetes is much more limited.
