Circulating cardiovascular microRNAs as diagnostic biomarkers for early diagnosis of diabetic heart disease

Heart disease in diabetics develops at a much early stage, but is often unrecognized due to the absence of pathognomonic signs, thereby restricting its early detection and active therapeutic management. Identifying the early modulators in diabetic heart disease (DHD) will not only help in early detection of the disease, but also allow sufficient time for optimisation of the treatment. Recently microRNAs (miRs) are gaining interest as diagnostic biomarkers for several diseases including cardiovascular diseases due to their stability in circulation and tissue specificity.
