High Triglycerides are Associated with Nerve Fiber Loss in Diabetes

I just wanted to post this study for anyone with diabetes or who has friends and family with the condition, researchers have recently found that high levels of triglycerides in the blood ( a type of fat) is a marker for nerve damage. Therefore its very important to keep a check on this and keep it down under 150. Neuropathy or nerve damage is one of the long term complications of diabetes, along the cardiovascular disease, damage to the eyes and more. However with good control of your blood sugars and lipids, the risk of these can be significantly decreased. Follow a healthy diet and keep active, work with a good Dr. and Dietitian to stay in top shape.


Diabetes doesn't need to control you, YOU control it!
