The leading cause of death in people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes is heart disease, according to researchers Joseph Hill and his associates at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.  This study has revealed that diabetic cardiomyopathy is a condition that can develop in the diabetic, causing changes in heart function and structure that appears to be completely independent of high blood pressure and related disease in major arterial blood vessels.  Apparently specific proteins that cause this complication are a result of metabolic stress.  These results may be helpful in developing promising new therapeutic approaches in the future.  But in the meantime, take action through the most powerful tools you have – diet and exercise.  The diabetic diet plan is based upon the proven science of the glycemic index to help diabetics manage their blood sugar levels and stay on track to lose the weight and reduce their chances of developing complications.
