Description of Diabetes with high cholesterol and blood pressure
Diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure are all major risk factors for cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Up to two-thirds of diabetes patients have co-existing high blood pressure. In individuals with diabetes, the abnormality in lipid levels is mostly low level of good cholesterol (HDL) associated with increased bad cholesterol (triglyceride) levels. Diabetes coexisting with hypertension and high cholesterol are clear risk factors for cardiovascular disease due to plaque (fatty deposits) build-up (arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease or ASCVD). If you have diabetes, controlling your blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure can help lower your risk of developing cardiovascular disease by 60%.
