Health news in general is pretty bad right now, but in this case, we’re talking about diabetes and it’s really affecting young people.
According to new research from the University of Illinois at Chicago, a recent study found that while young people with diabetes are suffering from lower blood pressure and increased risk of developing complications from blood clots, they’re also at much higher risk of dying from heart attacks and strokes than those with no diabetes.
In other words, it’s not just a matter of having diabetes, but being diabetic itself.
The study, published in the journal Diabetes Care, found that the prevalence of blood clotting in young people is significantly lower than it is in people who don’t have diabetes.
But the study also found that people who had diabetes had higher rates of death from cardiovascular diseases, heart attacks, stroke, and cancer than the general population.
For some people, the numbers are even starker.
One person in the study was 21 years old, and the prevalence rate of blood clotting was 19.5%.
In contrast, the prevalence in people with no history of diabetes was just 5.7%.
The researchers point out that although the rate of clots is higher in people in the general adult population, it was still lower than in young adults with diabetes.
The study found similar results for men and women, suggesting that the incidence of blood flow in the arteries and veins in these groups is much higher than it would be in younger people.
In addition, the people in this group were much more likely to have high blood pressure levels, which would be a good indicator of cardiovascular disease.
In terms of the prevalence, the researchers say that “in the general male population, prevalence is highest at about 35% and lowest at about 7% [for people with type 1 diabetes].
In the general female population, the highest prevalence rate is about 17% and the lowest is about 9%.”
These findings are important because they can potentially help to help people with Type 1 diabetes manage their condition better.
It also provides important insight into why people with this condition have such high mortality rates.
In fact, the number of people with the disease who die of cardiovascular causes is actually lower than the number who die from diabetes.
That’s because, the study authors write, “higher blood pressure is a protective factor against heart disease.”
And in addition, people with these conditions are more likely than others to be overweight, obese, and have diabetes, and therefore, have higher risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease and other cardiovascular complications.
But despite all of these positive trends, the authors note that the study still does not suggest that diabetes itself causes cardiovascular disease or death.
In general, the findings in this study are important and they give us a better idea of how to better understand the impact of diabetes on mortality.
But, for the researchers, the important thing is to understand what factors are driving the differences in the prevalence rates.
They think that there are several possible explanations for this.
One possibility is that there is a biological mechanism that is important in controlling blood flow, or that the body is more sensitive to the presence of clot than we realize.
And another possibility is there may be a genetic predisposition that affects how much blood vessels become clogged.
In the end, though, it seems that the main reason people with diabetic complications have lower blood pressures is because they are living in an age when diabetes is becoming more prevalent and the disease is being more strongly associated with lifestyle factors.
So what’s the best way to manage diabetes in the future?
One thing that may help might be to limit how much carbohydrates you eat.
A diet high in carbohydrates will help reduce blood pressure because carbohydrates have the capacity to hold water, and if you’re eating too much of a carbohydrate-rich diet, you can end up having more clots.
But in addition to limiting the amount of carbohydrates you consume, there are also ways you can improve your blood pressure.
The best thing to do is to make sure that you are eating a healthy diet that contains whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and nuts.
Also, it is important to avoid alcohol.
Alcohol can lower blood glucose levels, but it can also raise the risk of blood vessel clots by causing vasoconstriction.
Lastly, the research has also found a relationship between diabetes and hypertension, a condition in which the blood pressure increases because of a buildup of excess cholesterol in the body.
In contrast to this, the risk for developing diabetes is low in people whose blood pressure does not increase with hypertension.
This means that in addition the type of blood pressure that is affected, the type and severity of the vascular disease may also be associated with diabetes and cardiovascular disease risk.
