Risk of heart disease begins in teens

New study on individuals with type 1 diabetes reveal that they have more chances of developing heart disease by the time they reach their teens.

The findings were based on study done on a group of adolescents whose age was ranging from 12 to 21 years, without type 1 diabetes. It was found that there was substantial fatty plaque buildup inside the arteries regardless of body weight, family history, smoking and length of time with diabetes. These individuals are particularly susceptible to atherosclerosis. The findings were recently presented at a meeting of the American Dietetics Association (ADA).

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disorder in which the body no longer produces insulin, the hormone that clears the blood of glucose after a meal and deposits it into body cells to use as fuel. Patients must inject insulin several times a day to manage the disease. Complications of diabetes include heart disease, kidney failure, blindness and limb amputation.

According to the ADA, atherosclerosis accounts for roughly 1.5 million heart attacks and 600,000 strokes each year, in the general population.

According to researchers patients with more plaque inside their arteries also had higher levels of blood fats such as LDL ,"bad" cholesterol, and increased blood homocysteine, a substance that is associated with heart disease risk.

Dr. Jody S Krantz, author of the study feels that early intervention is warranted and is mandatory in adolescents and young adults suffering from diabetes and possible association with atheroscerosis.
