Type one Diabetes causes eye heart complications as high level of blood glucose ultimately harms blood vessels in the eye, kidney, heart and other organs. However, injury might be imposed by numerous biological techniques in different organs. Scientists at Joslin Diabetes Center now have depicted that the same process may also be functioning in the eye and heart providing precious clues that finally assist in cures that protect against complications.
People with severe kidney disease can have severe form of cardiovascular disease, the main cause of death for those with type 1 diabetes. The Joslin team had indicated that the eye disease called as proliferative diabetic retinopathy also is singly allied with cardiovascular disease.
George King, MD, Joslin senior vice president and chief scientific officer and professor at Harvard Medical School said that this is an unforeseen discovery. It implies that biological factors that either safeguard against or uplift injury to blood vessels are split between the eye and the cardiovascular system but they may be varied from those devastating the kidneys.
Discerning this connection caused a specific provocation since people with type 1 diabetes who possess persistent kidney illness normally possess severe eye damage. When the Joslin detectives observed the records of hundreds of participants in the Joslin Medalist program, the feature of which was the people who had this disease for more than 50 years, the scientists were able to locate 30 people who do not possess extreme eye disease but were not having continual kidney disease.
