The article presents a study which aims to assess the control of blood lipids, blood pressure (BP) and blood glucose among people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) as cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factor. The study reveals that just 5.6% of participants attained all three target goals. It shows that participants that were non-drinkers, non-smokers, educated, over the age of 65 and newly diagnosed with diabetes were more likely to attain control of all risk factors for CVD.
