Coronary heart disease (CHD) and heart attack (myocardial infarction MI) with high sugar diets

Risk to cardiovascular death mortality, coronary heart disease and heart attack with added sugar diet.

Coronary heart disease (CHD) with a survival time ranging from 3.2 to 17 years causes one sixth of deaths in the United States. Heart functionality thought to be affected with over consumption of sucrose (or common table sugar) or fructose (or fruit sugar) as they quickly worsen glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity. Severity of heart attack increases as the levels of insulin resistance increases. Earlier studies shows glucose intolerance (or pre-diabetic sugar levels) is closely associated with heart disease risk factors such as blood pressure and high cholesterol levels.

Earlier studies also shows hyperinsulinemia is an independent risk factor to coronary heart disease (CHD). Hyperinsulinemia condition worsens other risk factors associated to heart diseases. Hyperglycaemia or Hyperglycemia without any symptoms is a risk factor to cardiovascular disease (CVD) and coronary heart disease (CHD). Hyperglycemia condition can be developed even in a non-diabetic person.

A recent study done by researchers suggests diet containing added sugars causes more risk to heart diseases such as coronary heart disease (CHD) and heart attack (myocardial infarction MI). High quantity of sugar consumption is toxic to the heart even to a non-diabetic person. Researchers have reviewed previous studies for possible negative impact on heart function with sugar consumption and to find out what added sugar levels causes risk of harm.

Study findings shows a diet contributing more than 25 percent of the calories from added sugars triples risk for cardiovascular mortality compared to a diet contributing less than 10 percent of calorie from added sugars.

Study findings suggests that a diet with excess sugar levels increases insulin and blood sugar levels in the body. This condition may lead to increased risk to coronary heart disease (CHD) and heart attack (myocardial infarction MI). Researchers says risks to the development of coronary heart disease (CHD) and other cardiovascular problems can be decreased and a number of metabolic functions can be improved with the consumption of diet containing less added sugars. Patients with pre-existing risk factors to heart diseases may also be benefited by decreasing the consumption of diet containing added sugars.

Authors of the study were Dr. James J DiNicolantonio and Dr. James O'Keefe from St. Luke's Mid America Heart Institute, University of Missouri, Kansas City, Missouri, USA. The study findings were published December 2017 in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). Title of the article was "Added sugars drive coronary heart disease via insulin resistance and hyperinsulinaemia: a new paradigm." DOI : dx.doi.org/10.1136/openhrt-2017-000729

Hyperinsulinemia : Hyperinsulinemia or hyperinsulinaemia is a blood condition in which blood contains excess levels of insulin (produced by pancreas) relative to levels of glucose (produced by liver). High levels of insulin often misdiagnosed as Hyperglycemia (high blood sugar glucose levels) or type 2 diabetes (T2D).
