New research shows that people with diabetes face a higher risk of death from other diseases other than heart attack, and stroke.  The new study proves that people at the age of 50 with diabetes, die 6 years sooner than someone the same age without it.

AP Correspondent David Melendy spoke with Dr. Emanuele Di Angelantonio, and he says the findings suggest that treating diabetes might lower the risk of death from other diseases.

Analysts used research from the pooled medical information of 820,000 people from  nearly 100 studies, conducted mostly in Europe and North America.  The results can be found in the New England Journal of Medicine.
