Study of prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus and hypertension in overweight and obese people.

Hypertension and diabetes are major risk factors for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease. Hypertension remarkably increases the cardiovascular risk in diabetic patients. Combined therapy with daily doses of 23.3 +/- 9.8 g accupro and 1.5 mg indapamide reduced systolic and diastolic AP by 30.2 and 27.3% respectively in group 1 and by 27.6 and 27.1% in group 2. The combination therapy was more effective in reducing BP than either drug alone at any time of the study without affecting glucose homeostasis. Diabetes developed in 25 (4.6%) participants in the Diuretics group, as compared with 29 (4.9%) in the No-diuretics group (HR 0.93; 95% CI 0.55 to 1.58; p=0.800). The early and delayed myocardial uptake of 123I-MIBG was lower (p < 0.01 and p < 0.05, respectively), and the percent washout rate of 123I-MIBG was higher (p < 0.05) in the hypertensive diabetic group.

Stopping Diabetes Before it Starts

In fact, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 in 3 adults may be diagnosed with diabetes by 2050. It is estimated that 60 percent of prediabetics can avoid diabetes altogether with manageable lifestyle choices. According to the National Diabetes Education Program, prediabetes means having blood sugar levels that are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. In theory this makes stemming the epidemic a straightforward task of getting pre-diabetic patients to make better lifestyle decisions, but in practice this is exactly what makes it so hard to address. (Fasting = 79, 1/2hr = 81, 1hr = 71, 2hr =79) I have a very strong family history of diabetes and am working to prevent it in myself At least, that’s what I hope. JDRF announced it will work with scientists at Janssen to identify the causes of type 1 diabetes with the goal of developing strategies to intercept the disease before symptoms appear.
