Dysglycemia, not just diabetes, is a continuous risk factor for cardiovascular disease

Evid Based Cardiovasc Med. 1997 Dec;1(4):87-8. doi: 10.1016/s1361-2611(97)80002-4.


Dysglycemia is a continuous cardiovascular risk factor. Whether or not interventions that lower glucose levels will also lower cardiovascular risk remains to be determined. A number of ongoing studies may provide answers to this question. Recognition that these non-diabetic glucose levels confer an increased cardiovascular risk may suggest new ways for preventing CVD.
