Patients with diabetes mellitus have a greater risk for coronary artery disease (CAD) than the general population, and CAD is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in this population. Therefore, its early detection is very important to improve the prognosis. Especially, in asymptomatic patients, a proper screening test to detect occult CAD is needed. The Treadmill Test, in this sense, is a useful tool which can be easily performed with low cost for screening for the presence of myocardial ischemia associated with diabetes mellitus.
Key Words: Exercise test, Coronary artery disease, Diabetes mellitus
