    New drug cuts heart disease risk in diabetics

    Researchers say a newly discovered drug can dramatically slash the chances of diabetes patients developing heart disease, one of the main fatal effects of the disease.

    Heart disease is the major cause of reduced life expectancy in patients with diabetes who have about twice the risk of developing a range of cardiovascular diseases.

    The discovery, which is published in the journal Diabetologia, found that a daily treatment of patients with the drug, which is called N-acetylcysteine, reduces clot formation in the blood and is more effective than aspirin, the Daily Express reported.

    Researchers at the University of the Highlands and Islands say the clot-busting drug is currently licensed for use in reversing the harmful effects of a paracetamol overdose.
