Liver Inflammation Increases Cholesterol in Diabetes Patients

Liver Inflammation Increases Cholesterol in Diabetes Patients

Yet one more serious health risk has now been linked to diabetes. A team of scientists from Technische Universtat Zentrum Munchen (TUM) and the Collaborative Research Center SFB 1118 from Heidelberg University Hospital conducted a study whose results show a connection between liver inflammation and high cholesterol in patients who are diabetic. While this newfound information might sobering, it arms both doctors and patients alike with more knowledge of how to better manage diabetes in order to protect the functions of major organs. Most importantly, it can give a clear direction for the research of new and more effective treatments.
