Type 2 diabetes is a complex metabolic disorder, leading to increased morbidity, mortality, and cost. Dyslipidemia is a common condition coexisting with type 2 diabetes and a clear risk factor for the development of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). Primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular events is essential to the management of type 2 diabetes. Despite the progress in available treatment options, diabetes remains the leading cause of new-onset blindness in adults, kidney failure, and nontraumatic lower limb amputation.
