The number of complications that may be developed in a type 2 diabetes patients is not linked to the diabetes severity
Type 2 diabetes (T2D) condition increases risks to cardiovascular and heart diseases, high blood pressure and complications to eye, oral and kidneys. A study shows the number of complications or associated conditions those may be developed later in a type 2 diabetes patient appears to be not linked with the severity of the type 2 diabetes condition in that patient.
Researchers have conducted a study among 160 men and women adult individuals with an average age of 56 years. Researchers looked into following possible complications associated with a type 2 diabetes in diabetic patients.
Researchers used the Diabetes Cross-Disciplinary Index (DXDI) to rate the severity of above health conditions from 1 (good control or no condition) to 5 (poor control or worse disease condition) in an individual. Researchers assigned a "LOW" category to an individual receiving a rating of none to two conditions and "HIGH" category to an individual with a DXDI score of three or more.
Most diabetes people have two or more chronic health complications and researchers found the same number of diabetes complications among individuals with "HIGH" and "LOW" HbA1c levels indicating the number of complications associated with type 2 diabetes is not linked with the severity of the type 2 diabetes condition.
Author of the study was Adeba Mohammad, a researcher and also a medical student, Western University of Health Sciences, Pomona, California, the United States. The study findings were presented at the World Congress on Insulin Resistance, Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease, held between November 30 and December 2, 2017, at Los Angeles, United States.
