Diabetics have not double, or triple, but FOUR TIMES risk of heart disease compared to the general population !!
One of the many other complications of diabetes is involvement of the kidneys. When this happens the diabetic patient shows signs of "spilling protein in the urine" this shows as microscopic protein in their urine analysis and is called "proteinuria". By the time proteinuria shows up the risk of heart disease goes up to X 8 the general public !
Cutting down on carbohydrates (bread, pasta, rice, potato) and weight loss are main ways to fight diabetes.
How sweet it is to avoid all this and have a healthy life !!
To life !
