The leading cause of death for diabetics

About 422 Million adults were suffered from diabetes in 2014 worldwide, as reported by WHO in 2016.
One of the leading cause of death in these patients is heart disease.
According to the report, about 2.2 million deaths are from cardiovascular diseases, chronic kidney disease, and others related to higher-than-optimal blood glucose.
Also, adults with diabetes have a two or three times higher rate of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than adults without diabetes.

The study conducted in Japan revealed that the heart disease is the No.1 Killer of diabetes.
This study follows 1939 diabetic patients in Osaka about 10 years, and the mortality rates per 1000 person-years were 31.35 for males and 21.99 for females.
Among them, heart disease killed 19.5%, cerebrovascular disease 16.7% and renal disease 13.1%.
Thus this study showed heart disease is the No.1 killer of diabetes.

It is told that many of diabetic patients are suffered from diabetic peripheral neuropathy. In heart it is recognized as the diseases such as microvascular disease which are difficult to find by imaging technology for examining large vessels.

MCG detects the abnormality of the electricity generated by heart cell. That means, if the small vessels of heart are damaged by diabetes and the electric activity of heart are declined by it, MCG detects such abnormality without invasion for diabetic patients.
