How Diabetes Raises the Risk for Heart Disease
Heart disease is the leading cause of death among diabetics, but there are steps that you can take to reduce your risk if you are living with diabetes. If you do not regularly monitor your blood sugar and maintain a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise, you will be more likely to suffer complications such as heart attack and stroke.
As you will learn in this video, even diabetics who do manage their blood sugar have a higher risk of heart disease, so there is a need for ongoing communication and monitoring with your physician. Medication may be needed to control your risk for heart disease, but exercise is one of the most powerful tools diabetics have in protecting their heart health.
