Diabetes may increase the risk of heart failure

By  | 

Diabetes increases the risk of heart failure especially in women.
That's according to a new study of 12-million people across the globe.
It showed women with type one diabetes were five times more likely to develop heart failure than those without diabetes.
The risk was three times higher for men.
Likewise, the increased risk for heart failure among type two diabetics was 95% in women and 74% in men.
The study was led by researchers at The George Institute for Global Health (UK) and published in 'Diabetologia'
