Deficiency of blood sugar levels is just as dangerous as excess sugar. If the excess blood sugar leads to diabetes type 2, then the deficiency can lead to fatal cardiovascular problems. Low glucose has contributed to the occurrence of heart disease that led to the death.
Quoted from the Times of India, hypoglycemia is a side effect when diabetics get insulin therapy. In a recent study found, diabetic patients who were given insulin and then experiencing hypoglycemia, 60 percent higher to experience cardiovascular events. They are twice as likely to pick up death at the same time than people whose blood sugar is controlled.
“It was one of the first studies that reported the risk of cardiovascular events and mortality in people with type 1 diabetes and type 2,” said Kamlesh Khunti, professor of primary care diabetes and vascular medicine at the University Leicester, England.
Because of the importance of understanding these risks, then someone needs to implement strategies to themselves not to develop hypoglycemia. Especially in patients with type 1 and 2 diabetes, heart disease risk when hypolimnia higher than those without diabetes. The reason, patients with diabetes, are more susceptible to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques in blood vessels that lead to a high risk of cardiovascular disease
The study involved 3.260 patients with type 1 diabetes and 10.422 patients with diabetes type 2. These findings challenge the diabetic patients to maintain their ability to control sugar levels normally without experiencing hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia, especially in those who received insulin therapy.
The study published in the journal Diabetes Care.
