London: Scientists have cautioned that the benefits of intensive glucose therapy for diabetics need to be balanced against the increase in total and cardiovascular disease-related death, increased weight gain, and high risk for severe low blood sugar. The study was aimed to determine whether intensive blood glucose (sugar) control worked better than standard blood sugar control among diabetics. Dr Faramarz Ismail-Beigi, a diabetes specialist with University Hospitals Case Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University, and colleagues conducted a study that examined patients who underwent intensive glucose-lowering treatment for 3.5 years.
However, for those having diabetes for 10 years or more, intense therapy is associated with higher risk of cardiovascular death. ANI
