ABSTRACT
The article cites a study on whether glucose control reduces cardiovascular (CV) events and mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Studies compared intensive glucose-lowering regimens with standard regimens in patients who had significant group differences in hemoglobin Alc (HbAlc) levels. The study revealed that glucose control does reduce some cardiovascular events but did not change overall mortality.
