Diabetes & Heart Disease

Heart disease is the number one killer of women and men in the U.S. and is the lead cause of diabetes-related disabilities and deaths.

Even if your diabetes is controlled, you’re still more at risk for:

Diabetes thickens the lining of your blood vessels, which makes it harder for blood to pass through. It also contributes to heart disease and poor circulation. These risk factors together are known as metabolic syndrome.
