Blood testing could reveal underlying diabetic health issues|
Date: 2013-01-31 12:09:37
Complications from existing diseases are not uncommon, though finding ways to treat multiple illnesses at once can be difficult for physicians and trying for patients. Diabetics especially face a number of potential complications, making regular blood tests for sugar levels, heart function and tissue health essential to ongoing wellness. Researchers are now finding new ways that basic cholesterol testing can help isolate risks before they arise in these sensitive patients.
The Kaiser Permanente group looked at over 26,000 diabetics to isolate common factors in their blood and other samples that indicated the incidence for developing heart disease. The center's recent report, published by the Journal of General Internal Medicine, highlighted some of the trends scientists at the center uncovered, including patterns in heart disease, stroke and other pulmonary events that resulted in hospitalization of diabetics.
The results of the research comparison showed that people with diabetes are up to four times more likely than people without the condition to have heart disease or die from a heart attack. Elevated blood pressure, unsafe levels of cholesterol and uncontrolled blood sugar were common themes in records of patients, both living and deceased, who had been diagnosed with cardiovascular problems.
