Diabetes patients with high cardiovascular, respiratory and microvascular comorbidities were more likely to have higher high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I and T levels, compared with those with a low comorbidity burden, according to a study in Diabetes Care. Based on data from 1,835 diabetes patients aged 67 to 89, the findings also revealed that mortality risk was highest among those with high levels of either troponin and a high comorbidity burden, but was also increased among those with high levels of both the troponins and a low comorbidity burden.
