Default Diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol levels. Help pretty please!? - 07-07-2010, 10:30 PM

I know that diabetics are more prone to high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels, but why? Why are they more prone? is it because of high glucose levels? if so, how does this cause the two mentioned problems?
thank you!

The main culprit is the persistent high blood sugar levels. If you are a diabetic, your cells are thriving to have glucose (energy) although it is in high levels, they cannot use it due to insulin problems. This high glucose is deposited in forms of fats. On the other hand, your body cells use body fats (triglycerides) as alternative source of energy.

As you may see, the lipid profile is altered. If cholesterol balance is damaged, it may lead to atherosclerosis (narrowing of blood vessels) that results in high blood pressure.

My suggestion to you is to watch the documentary film "Simply Raw" and all your questions will be answered there and you will understand. You will benefit from it greatly.
