Not a study.. but an interview that appeared in diabetes in control.. has to do with cholesterol and what is best level of LDL for type 2
Hint: it's way lower than you think
"Steve: So for those persons who are at risk for coronary artery disease, what was the number?
"Dr. Eckel: Well, with diabetes, under 100 for primary prevention, that means there is no history of an event, those people with a previous event at least under 70 and perhaps under 55 based on Improve It now
But wait.. there's more
"but yet patients with diabetes often have heart attacks and strokes, and their LDL cholesterols may be 90 on maximum statin therapy. I think those people need a lower LDL. Now, how low it should go, whether we have a benefit that plateaus at 55 or 40 or 25, we don’t know yet. Secondly, long-term, I’m talking about 10 and 20 years of very low cholesterols like under 25, is that going to be harmful? We just don’t know that either.
