Increasing severity of heart failure is associated with an increased risk of developing diabetes, a new study has found. The authors conclude: “This study suggests an increased risk of development of diabetes in patients with heart failure, with increasing loop-diuretic dosage used as a proxy for heart failure severity. It emphasizes the need to monitor and treat patients with heart failure to prevent diabetes development. Future strategies for heart failure management should include increased awareness of risk of diabetes in patients with severe heart failure.” … Read the Rest
