Diabetic and Heart Diseases, Both are Risky

posted in: Health Tips | 16

There is a big risk to have diabetic and heart diseases.Recently, some scientists have discovered that men with type 2 diabetes and men with cardiovascular disease have similar long-term mortality risks. The research showed that men with type 2 diabetes and men with previous heart stroke or attack had a 3 to 4 fold risk of cardiovascular death, as compared to men without either disease in the years following the first acute event.

The latest study underscores the serious risk of diabetes. Dr. Gilles Dagenais and colleagues from Laval University and the University of Montreal write as “men with type 2 diabetes and no previous cardiovascular disease had a 3-time more cardiovascular mortality risk compared with men with neither cardiovascular disease nor diabetes at the beginning of the follow-up.” However, this research was limited to only white men; besides, diabetes was self-reported in more than two-thirds of cases.

According to the study, in the first five years, researchers discovered men with type 2 diabetes had a very lower risk for cardiovascular mortality compared to men with previous heart stroke or attack or and without diabetes. However, in the long term, the researchers got that both of the groups had similar mortality risks. The conclusion of the study specifically highlight that there is a need for optimal management and prevention of diabetes, stroke and heart disease. So, if you get those health problems consult with your physician.

    It is very good advice but controlling sugar in the blood is too difficult no? I am struggling with this problem from my teenage days.
