Marble stated that myocardial infarction is the cause of death in more than half of all patients with diabetes. Every diabetic patient over the age of 50 years whose diabetic state becomes unstable, should have an E.C.G taken and it is shown that if acute myocarfial infarction is the cause of the diabetic upset, stability will not be restored until the infarction heals. Acute myocardial infarction may be the first indication of diabetes in middle age and the result of a blood sugar level estimation may reveal the association. Dr. Agar stated that infarction is silent in 70 % of diabetics.
