Abstract

Heart failure and diabetes mellitus are chronic complex medical conditions that are closely related and commonly coexist.Treatment options have varied over the years, but newer treatment modalities have developed which have improved prognosis and longevity of patients with these conditions. Unfortunately, despite these advances, the evidence base remains insufficient, and larger randomised control trials need to be conducted. Here we discuss the available evidence and treatment and management of these inter-related conditions.
