  • Blood Glucose and Cardiovascular disease.

    It seems that elevated fasting or non fasting blood glucose levels may be the best predictor of cardiovascular disease. There are plenty of studies in this area, here's just a couple:

    What kind of discussion would you like? This seems kind of obvious.

      Abstract of the first paper is arrant nonsense. They mention a causal relationship several times although the study was not designed to establish any such thing.

      Neither paper establishes how good a predictor might be blood glucose, or that lowering blood glucose through any means might lower risk of disease. All they do is establish some correlation between blood glucose levels and disease. Yawn
