RC660.R511.1 - Diabetes Mellitus
Robert J. Rushakoff, MD, FACP
Diabetes mellitus a chronic disease - the body is not able to store and use sugar leading to hyperglycemia, high levels of glucose in the blood. The goal is to keep blood glucose as close to normal as possible with a healthy diet and exercise, reducing progression and complications of diabetes such as - retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, atherosclerosis and strokes. When diabetics aggressively control their blood pressure and cholesterol levels, the risk of cardiovascular disease decreases dramatically.

Gary F. Milechman, MD, FACC and Jay S. Luxenberg, MD
Lifestyle changes of diet, exercise and stress reduction prevent and regress atherosclerosis. Improvements were found in patients with the most severe fatty deposits in the walls of their blood vessels. If needed, use cholesterol lowering medications to decrease chances of heart attack, stroke or death.
