As per new research findings, people with diabetes and stroke may maintain an ideal sugar level to avoid the risk of different vascular diseases like a stroke or a heart attack later on. Findings of this research were published in the medical journey ‘Neurology.’
The study author Moon-Ku Han, MD, Ph.D., of Seoul National University College of Medicine in Korea, said, “Suffering from diabetes may lead to a higher risk of a heart attack. But as per our studies, optimum blood sugar level maylower the risk of getting another stroke, a heart attack or other vascular problems.
This study involved 18,567 diabetic patients with an average age of 70. All the participants were admitted to the hospitals for an ischemic stroke caused by a blood clot. After admission, the researcher used a test called hemoglobin A1C to determine people’s blood sugar levels for the past two or three months. Participants had an average A1C of 7.5 percent. After observation of one year, it was found that there is an association between A1C level with risk of having another stroke, a heart attack or dying from these vascular causes.
