Researchers from the Sax Institute, Ultimo NSW 2007 Australia wanted to find out the reason for the increasing number of open-heart surgery patients with Chinese background. They conducted studies to find out cardiovascular (CVD) risk factors among more than 250,000 individuals, aged over 45 years. They categorized the study individuals into three groups (a) Chinese (b) Mixed Chinese (c) Non-Chinese Australians. Researchers found following risk factors for the development of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) among individuals with Chinese background compared with non-Chinese background.
The study found that if an individual is overweight, exercise may not protect an individual from type 2 diabetes (T2D).

Other problems related to sex reported by those women experiencing painful sex are
Difficulty in reaching climax may be due to diabetic neuropathy and pain during sex may be due to vaginal dryness.
A PREFER AF (European Prevention of Thromboembolic Events-European Registry in Atrial Fibrillation study) study shows patients with diabetes with atrial fibrillation (AF) being treated with anticoagulation, diabetes without insulin did not increase thromboembolic risk. Researchers studied 5,717 patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) from seven countries containing 1,288 patients with diabetes and 288 of the patients with diabetes are taking insulin medication treatment. Irrespective of insulin medication treatment, researchers observed following health events are more in patients with diabetes compared with non-diabetes individuals.
The study results show
The study findings were published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
