  1. Individuals, including non-diabetics, are 69% more likely to develop ischemic cardiovascular disease if glucose levels in their blood are slightly elevated, say researchers. The study, which involves more than 80,000 people, was conducted by researchers at the University of Copenhagen and is published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Until now, the leading threat to global heart health had beencholesterol. Marianne Benn, chief physician at Copenhagen University Hospital and associate professor at the University of Copenhagen, explained: "We know that diabetics and people with high cholesterol levels are prone to ischemicheart disease, but our study also made it possible to look at blood glucose level in isolation. It is surprising that even a slightly higher blood glucose value appears to be dangerous over a longer period - and that sugar alone makes a negative difference." Although healthy individuals without diabetes have a normal, fasting blood glucose value of less than 6 mmol/l (or 108 mg/dl) glucose, the researchers found that over several years, just a slight increase (1 mmol/l or 18mg/dl) in blood glucose increases the risk of heart attack by 69%. The researchers examined data from The Copenhagen General Population Study, The Copenhagen City Heart Study, and The Copenhagen Ischemic Heart Disease Study, which together involved 80,522 Danes. They found that a slightly elevated level of blood sugar is enough on its own to cause cardiovascular damage. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/246612.php
