Diabetes Increases Risk of Death from Heart Attack


More research shows that diabetes increases your risk of dying from a heart attack, according to research published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health. Researchers followed 703,920 participants who experienced a heart attack. Those diagnosed with diabetes at the time of their cardiovascular event were less likely to survive than those without diabetes. This study supports a recent study with similar results, and suggests treatments focus on the long-term effects of heart disease in diabetes patients.
