The article considers the features of the clinical manifestation and modern medical treatment of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) in combination with diabetes mellitus (DM). Safety of antihyperglycemic therapy in patients with CAD, and features of use of antianginal drugs in DM patients are discussed. It is emphasized that the combination treatment of a patient with DM and CAD will be successful only if antihyperglycemic therapy assigned is adequate and safe in terms of possible hypoglycemia and cardiovascular risks on the one hand, and antianginal therapy is metabolically neutral on the other hand. Undoubtedly, it is necessary to pay attention to correction of modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular disease, and treatment of arterial hypertension and chronic heart failure, which are common in this group of patients.
