Ways Type 1 Diabetics Can Reduce Risk of Heart Disease

People with type 1 diabetes are up to ten times more likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease than the general population, and the condition accounts for more than half of all deaths in this patient group. In the UK, most people with type 1 diabetes regulate their blood sugar levels by injecting insulin throughout the day. The dose after mealtimes is usually calculated from the amount of carbohydrate in the meal. But this doesn't account for how much fat is in the food, which is broken down by the body at a slower rate than carbohydrate.
