Driving down blood-glucose levels more assertively can lead to healthier diabetics, according to Australian-led international research. The work appears to contradict concerns that lowering sugar levels too much could trigger hypoglycemia. The head researcher, from Sydney's George Institute for International Health, said that although that risk is present, it is slight in the face of the benefits of reduced kidney and other complications, and overall health of the patient. A substantial lowering of glucose levels reduced the overall risk of diabetes complications by 10 percent, the study concluded, and lowered kidney disease by 21 percent and proteinuria by 30 percent.
