Good glycemic control can have a positive effect on the course and prognosis of coronary disease during and after myocardial infarction. It also reduces the risk of its onset. Both postprandial and fasting blood glucose must be normalized. Optimal treatment of coronary patients should include reduction of risk factors and 4 drugs: a beta-blocker at an effectively beta-blocking dose, aspirin at a daily dose between 75 and 100 mg, a statin that leads to an LDL-cholesterol level less than 1 g/L, and an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, with a demonstrated dose-effect relation. Efficacy is best when compliance is considered an essential objective.
