Consuming too much sugar can lead to cardiovascular problems

One molecule of glucose metabolite glucose 6-phosphate (G6P) can lead to improper function of the heart.

Online PR News – 06-July-2013 – California – ( : Researchers have revealed that consuming too much sugar can greatly increase the risk of heart failure. The a previous study conducted by researchers found that people who consume high levels of added sugar, such as in processed beverages and food, are much more likely to have higher risk factors of heart disease.One molecule of glucose metabolite glucose 6-phosphate (G6P) can lead to improper function of the heart.When people consume too much sugar and starch and causes severe stress to the heart G6P builds up.

Approximately half of people diagnosed with the condition die within a year of diagnosis and there are over half a million new cases of heart failure in the country every year. The increase in sugar consumption has led to more diabetes and heart disease over the past decade.

The research team, first conducted preclinical trials in animals and then moved on to test tissue taken from patients who had a piece of their heart muscle removed so that they could place a left ventricle assist device. The results of the trials revealed that G6P can cause significant damage to the heart.

When people have high blood pressure (hypertension), or other diseases, the heart is already stressed, its condition only worsens and it can become severely injured when it takes in excess glucose. There are drugs, such as rapamycin (an immunosuppressant) and metformin (a diabetes medication) that can block the signaling of G6P and improve cardiac power.

A study published that mice suffering from age-related heart disease experienced a significant improvement in cardiac function following a three-month treatment with the FDA-approved drug rapamycin.
