Adults with diabetes are nearly twice as likely to die from heart disease or stroke as people without diabetes. This is because over time, high blood glucose from diabetes can damage your blood vessels and the nerves that control your heart. The good news is that the steps you take to manage your diabetes can also help lower your chances of having heart disease or a stroke:

  • Stop smoking or using other tobacco products.

  • Manage your A1C, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.

  • Develop or maintain healthy lifestyle habits - be more physically active and learn ways to manage stress.

  • Take medicines as prescribed by your doctor.
