man giving himself diabetes shot

People with diabetics are now being helped to reverse heart disease by aggressively using drugs that lower cholesterol and blood pressure. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, lowering cholesterol and blood pressure below the usual recommendations help reverse damage to the arteries and heart.

Diabetics are two to four times more likely to die from heart disease than people without the added complications of diabetes. Some experts noted concern that the research does not indicate how low the cholesterol and blood pressure levels should be lowered in order to yield the desired effect.
