Abstract

Clinical guidelines, while representing an objective reference to perform correct therapeutic choices, contain grey zones, where recommendations are not supported by solid evidence. In a conference held in Bergamo in October 2018, an attempt was made to highlight some of the main grey zones in Cardiology and, through a comparison between experts, to draw shared conclusions that can illuminate our clinical practice. This manuscript contains the statements of the symposium concerning the controversies in diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. The first topic concerns the appropriateness of second level cardiovascular screening of the entire population of diabetic patients. The second gap in evidence concerns the validity of a target of glycated hemoglobin considering the last trials. The work has also been implemented with the evidences deriving from important randomized studies published after the date of the Conference.
