Hidden Condition DOUBLES Heart Disease Risk
They say that what you don’t know won’t hurt you.
That’s not true in life, and it’s definitely not the case when it comes to your health.
And a recent study drives that point home.
Because researchers have found that an undetected condition could DOUBLE your risk of developing heart disease and severe gum disease.
Here’s what you need to know.
Having type 2 diabetes comes with plenty of risks… some of them are more well-known than others.
For example, previous studies show a connection between diabetes and heart disease, and also diabetes and gum disease.
Diabetics are three times more likely to have periodontitis.
And in people who have BOTH diabetes and gum disease, the risk of dying from heart disease is much higher.
But what if you have a blood sugar disorder… and don’t even know it?
In a study published in the journal Diabetes Care, researchers wanted to see if having an undetected blood sugar disorder (a condition called dysglycemia) was also a risk for heart and gum disease.
Data was collected on over 1,600 people, half who had had a heart attack and half who hadn’t. Then the researchers tossed out those who had been officially diagnosed with diabetes.
In the individuals left, they broke them up into three blood sugar categories: normal, reduced, and newly detected diabetes.
It turns out that the people who had undetected dysglycemia – in other words, those with either outright diabetes or poor glucose control – had DOUBLE the risk of having a heart attack or severe gum disease.
Most people know that heart disease is bad – especially since it’s the nation’s number one cause of death.
But gum disease carries its own set of risks and has been linked to heart disease, stroke, and even Alzheimer’s disease.
In other words, you don’t want to have to deal with EITHER.
And according to this study, one key way to do that is to stay on top of how your body is handling glucose.
