Even Lean People with Type 2 Diabetes have Increased Inflammation


Oct 28, 2007

According to a recent study reported at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD), people with type 2 diabetes have significantly higher average white blood cell counts, no matter if they are fat or thin.

Such inflammation has been linked to increased risk of cardiovascular disease. The researchers hope that more research will show how much of the inflammation is caused by high blood sugar versus other causes.
