In the UK, the health service has published a prediction of mortality rates by cause. This prognosis clearly showed that most people die from cardiovascular disease.
A 2015 study identified common pathogenetic factors between type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease. The signs of diabetes mellitus were studied in cardiac patients, whose age ranged from 18 to 80 years. Those patients who actually had diabetes mellitus were excluded from the study; they turned out to be about 29%. This group of people did not need additional examination, because scientists knew about the high risk of developing coronary sclerosis in diabetics. On the contrary, the interest was attracted by patients with coronary sclerosis who were not diagnosed with diabetes mellitus.
What do type 2 diabetes mellitus and coronary heart disease have in common?
Everyone who belonged to the group of subjects underwent a hemoglobin test, as well as a glucose load tolerance test. Based on the results obtained, the following conclusions were made:
- in blood tests of 1/3 of people without diabetes, high sugar levels were found;
- 1/3 of patients were predisposed to the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus;
- in 1/3 of the study participants, the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus was not confirmed.
- In this case, not the most accurate diagnostic methods were used. For example, if you take a blood test for insulin levels, then all patients would have latent diabetes mellitus.

If type 2 diabetes is suspected, a fasting glucose test should be taken. If the increased glucose level is not detected on time, then over time, the patient’s blood vessels will be damaged due to surges in sugar levels. And such jumps happen after every meal. That is why a more in-depth examination is required.
The author of The Diabetes Epidemic and You, Joseph Kraft, has conducted research to measure insulin levels in patients with coronary artery disease. The essence of the survey was to determine the insulin, not the sugar curve of the blood after loading the body with glucose. Based on this study, criteria were determined by which it is possible to detect latent diabetes mellitus by determining the level of insulin. According to the specialist, those patients who have coronary artery disease, but who have not found diabetes, actually suffer from its latent form. And the pathological basis of these two serious diseases is atherosclerosis.

The degree of insulin resistance determines the likelihood of contracting diseases of civilization
There was another important study that surprised the entire team of scientists. As a result of this study, it was determined that, by the degree of insulin resistance, it is possible to determine how high the likelihood of getting sick and even dying from diseases of civilization, which include:
- cardiac ischemia;
- arterial hypertension;
The main impetus for the development of these ailments is the high level of insulin and insulin resistance. Those who die of heart disease simply did not show signs of coronary sclerosis in time, and damage to the vascular walls went unnoticed.
When analyzing fasting glucose, it is possible to determine type 2 diabetes mellitus and atherosclerosis, but at a later date. There is an effective technique – scanning the coronary vessels to determine calcifications, but this method is used extremely rarely in practical medicine. Therefore, it is necessary to monitor the level of insulin in the blood, conduct a glucose tolerance test and monitor hemoglobin.
To prevent death from cardiovascular disease, try to monitor your hemoglobin level. In case of unfavorable results of the analysis, the main thing is to change the diet and lifestyle in time. published by econet.ru
