Why young people with diabetes develop heart damage

10 diciembre 2014

Magnetic resonance imaging has been used by researchers to reveal why young people with Type-2 diabetes develop heart damage. The study will randomly allocate patients to different treatment arms. The first group will receive optimal blood sugar lowering treatment and lifestyle advice. The second, a very low calorie diet and the third, moderate intensity exercise training. The research team hope that conducting MRI scans throughout this period will indicate whether early heart damage can be completely reversed.
