Insulin-treated men with type 2 diabetes who did not have a history of cardiovascular disease were 40% more likely than women to develop the condition, and their risk of having a heart attack or dying from CVD was 70% higher than that of nondiabetic men who had a history of heart trouble, according to a study presented at the American College of Cardiology annual meeting. The findings underscore the importance of cholesterol screening, tailored exercise programs and blood pressure control among men with diabetes who use insulin, researchers said.
