Data on 26,636 type 2 diabetes patients showed those with poor control over A1C, systolic blood pressure and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, as well as those with only good A1C control, had the highest rate of cardiovascular disease-related hospitalizations after 5.6 years. Those whose three risk factors were well-controlled had the lowest hospitalization rates. The findings appear in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
