New research conducted by senior medical officer and ph. d. Niels Holmark Andersen supports the theory that an elevated blood glucose level reduces the heart's pumping ability. On the basis of a survey of 170 diabetes patients, he has demonstrated that there is an overall coherence between sub blood sugar and the hearts abiltiy to pump blood.
"What the Diabetes Association have recommended for years, turns out to be true: Beware of your blood sugar, watch out for your blood pressure," says Niels Holmark Andersen. The study offers good news for the many people, who have high blood sugar. "Patients who got down there levels and start to regulated their glucose level, had already after 45 days a better heart function."
