f such treatments as antiplatelet agents and statins in 12,106 patients with type 2 diabetes. All of the people identified in the study were on medications for high blood sugar, but few were taking medications for heart disease.

There were a reported 2.2 million Canadians living with diabetes in 2002, of whom 90 per cent had type 2 diabetes.

More programs need to be developed to improve the quality of cardiovascular risk reduction in high-risk diabetes patients, Dr. Johnson said.

"It is really a problem of the way our health care systems deal with chronic medical conditions that require prevention, such as healthy lifestyles or medications that can reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes," Dr. Johnson said. "Our primary health care system needs support to help identify people who need this preventive care, and then to follow their care into the future."
