Total, CVD mortality rates increase in young adults with type 1 diabetes

Total, CVD mortality rates increase in young adults with type 1 diabetes
September 27, 2016

Young adults with type 1 diabetes have an increased risk for total and cardiovascular disease mortality and hospitalized cardiovascular disease, with greater risks for women than men, study data show.

“CVD remains very high in young adults with childhood onset diabetes,” Trevor Orchard, MD, professor of epidemiology, medicine and pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health and medical director of the nutrition lipid program, told Endocrine Today. “Young adults with 20 years history of type 1 diabetes should be treated as high risk for CVD and started on at least moderately intensive statin therapy.”
