Reduced Lung Capacity Accelerates With Diabetes
Date:3/26/2008

protein B (ApoB) may better predict the risk of heart disease than LDL cholesterol levels, long used as one measurement of good heart health. A panel of diabetes and heart experts agreed that LDL ("bad") cholesterol was still an important risk factor, but that after LDL cholesterol levels were brought under control, ApoB (a measure of the number of LDL particles in the blood that cause hardening of the arteries) should also be tested and treated to target levels in people at high risk.

The statement emphasizes the need to examine all factors for heart disease, to continue to focus on lifestyle interventions to reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes and heart disease, and to more aggressively control all lipids. The paper also urged health care providers to look at a person's lifetime risk for heart disease, rather than just at short-term risks.

Diabetes Care, published by the American Diabetes Association, is the leading peer-reviewed journal of clinical research into the nation's fifth leading cause of death by disease. Diabetes also is a leading cause of heart disease and stroke, as well as the leading cause of adult blindness, kidney failure, and non-traumatic amputations.
