Analysis: Weight Gain Affects Mortality in Type 2 Diabetes Patients
Custom HealthCare, Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, which has been offering insurance services to individuals and businesses since 1973.
For the analysis, researchers used the records of 8,486 patients in 84 primary-care centers in Sweden from 1999-2008. Patients included in the analysis had newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes. They first had their BMI measured at the time of diagnosis, then a second time one year later. These patients also had no newly diagnosed cardiovascular disease or cancer during the first year following their diabetes diagnosis.
Among 8,500 patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, the 1,238 patients who gained at least one body mass index unit during the first year following diagnosis had a cardiovascular mortality rate 63% above that of 4,523 patients whose BMI remained steady.
With any major disease or condition, Virginia insurance is crucial to help shoulder the often high cost of treatment. Fortunately, agencies like Custom HealthCare are able to offer a broad range of coverage options through partnerships with top rated carriers.
