Higher Risk of Stroke Can Follow Midlife Type 2 Diabetes
The link between developing type 2 diabetes midlife and an increased risk of stroke is proven stronger than ever before.
In a study of thousands of twins, a significant connection between developing type 2 diabetes midlife and the risk of stroke and blocked brain arteries later in life was found. By studying twins, researchers were hoping to gather insights on possible influences and concluded the link was independent of genetics and upbringing and had everything to do with a higher risk of developing narrow arteries leading to brain blockages. The explanation behind why that blockage occurs is not as well known and more study and analysis is needed. To keep reading, head on over to Medical News Today.
