Doctors make high blood sugar nearly double heart attack risk

An international team of researchers led by doctors from the Mercy Catholic Medical Center found that young people with prediabetes are more likely to have a heart attack than their peers with normal blood sugar levels. they talked about it meeting Organized by the American Heart Association for Treatment Research and Outcomes, Reston, Virginia, USA.

In prediabetes, fasting blood glucose is 5.5-7.0 mmol/L, which is higher than normal, but not enough to indicate type 2 diabetes.

Researchers collected data on hospitalizations of people aged 18-44. The frequency of heart attacks in people with prediabetes was 2.13%, – only 0.3%. In addition, high cholesterol was found in 68.1%, absent – only 47.3%, obesity – 48.9% and 25.7%, respectively, in patients with prediabetes.

“After controlling for various modifier factors, we found that young adults with prediabetes were 1.7 times more likely to be hospitalized for a heart attack compared to their non-prediabetic peers,” the researchers said.

Scientists recommend monitoring blood sugar levels and avoiding the development of prediabetes and diabetes through a healthy diet, exercise and avoidance of bad habits.
