Hyperglycemia in patients with heart is a bad sign

Hyperglycemia in patients with heart is a bad signHyperglycemia in patients with heart is a bad sign 'Therefore, we need more active diabetes detection at the earliest stages', sure Dr. Jafna L. Cox and her colleagues from Dalhousie University (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada). As part of the prospective cohort studies ICONS (Improving Cardiovascular Outcomes in Nova Scotia) scientists have conducted a thorough data analysis of medical records of all residents of this province hospitalized with myocardial infarction (mi) in the period from October 1997 to October 1998 (a total of 1644 person). For hyperglycemia were taken increase blood glucose above 198 mg/DL. The findings appear in the November issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Diabetics with normoglycemia amounted to 10.2% of the cohort, diabetics with hyperglycemia - 16.9% of patients without diabetes, but with hyperglycemia - 8.1%; the remaining participants did not suffer from diabetes and have a normal blood glucose level. According to multivariate analysis, ventolinonline mortality was 2.44 times higher among persons with hyperglycemia without diabetes compared with patients without diabetes and with normoglycemia. Among patients with diabetes and normoglycemia odds ratio was 1.87, with diabetes and hyperglycemia - 1.91. 'For patients with diabetes and/or hyperglycemia forecast remains relatively poor: Neither body mass index nor the lipid metabolism were not associated with mortality rates, therefore, hyperglycemia itself, and not as part of the metabolic syndrome that adversely affects prognosis', I think Dr. Cox and her colleagues.
