CV Death Spikes When Weight Gain Follows New Diabetes Diagnosis


Type 2 diabetes is fat person diabetes.

What do you think the chances are that a fat person will get fatter, even after getting the diagnosis of diabetes?
Patients newly diagnosed with diabetes who gain, rather than lose or maintain, weight are at a significantly increased risk of cardiovascular death, new Swedish data suggest. The findings cast a light on a group that is rarely the focus of diabetes studies, lead author Dr Johan Bodegård (Center for Excellence, AstraZeneca Nordic, Södertälje, Sweden) told heartwire . Most studies, he points out, focus on baseline weight of participants but fail to track changes over time, and if they do, they look at diabetics who manage to shed some pounds, not put them on.
Pretty good, I'll bet.
