Diabetes and Heart Health
Many people with diabetes do not realize that having diabetes increases their chances of having a heart attack or stroke. Research has shown that people with diabetes can lower their risk for heart disease and other heart problems by managing the ABC’s of diabetes—A1C, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol—and stopping smoking. NDEP provides educational resources for people with diabetes and health care professionals to raise awareness of the effect of diabetes on heart health.
