Strict Blood Sugar Control Lowers Heart Risks in Diabetics
Date:5/22/2009

Adding even the small benefit for heart attack is worthwhile, because it adds to the overall benefit of glucose control in these patients, Mazzone said. It's already well established and well accepted that glucose control can minimize the risk for blindness, minimize the risk for kidney disease, minimize the risk for nerve disease.

In another report in the same journal issue, Dr. David Williams, from the Institute for Women's Health at University College London, and colleagues looked at 20 studies and found that pregnant women who develop gestational diabetes have a seven-and-a-half times increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes after giving birth.

"The increased risk in relative risk of type 2 diabetes reported in this meta-analysis might help motivate mothers to attend screening programs, and health-care professionals to increase uptake to these programs or perhaps suggest the best time for reassessment. Since the risk of type 2 diabetes seems to be maintained for several years, consideration of whether any form of continuous assessment would lead to health gains is important," the authors noted.
