Diabetics Facing Heart Surgery Need To Control Blood Sugar
(Undated) -- People with diabetes have a higher risk for heart disease and many end up needing surgery, most commonly coronary artery bypass surgery. Doctor Joseph Sabik says there are four things to keep in mind before having bypass surgery. Diabetics tend to do better when an artery graft is used during coronary artery bypass compared to when a vein graft is used. Doctor Sabik says you should ask your doctor how the surgery will be done before going into surgery.
