Diabetics Are Prone To Early Death Risk

People suffering from Type 2 diabetes are likely to face death earlier than those of the same age without the disease, says a study.//

Researchers studied causes of the deaths of large numbers of patients in Britain between 1992 and October 1999. They found that patients with Type 2 diabetes aged 35 to 54 were three times as likely to die early as non-sufferers of the same age, reported the online edition of BBC News.

The study by Henrietta Mulnier of Surrey University and other researchers published in the journal of Diabetic Medicine, however, suggests that the risk of complications leading to death can be reduced if people with the disease get the care they need to manage their condition.

"There is no reason why people with diabetes cannot live long and healthy lives," a researcher said.

Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes in which either the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin. It tends to develop in later life and is linked to obesity and diet.

It could lead to heart disease, strokes, kidney failure, nerve damage leading to amputations and blindness.

Diabetes deaths are predicted to rise by 25 percent over the next decade.

It is treated with lifestyle changes such as a healthier diet, weight loss and increased physical activity.
