Heart Disease and Stroke

People with diabetes have an increased risk of heart attack, 2-3 times as high as someone who does not have diabetes.

Stroke is more frequent in people with diabetes.

The circulation in your legs can become sluggish or blocked causing pain and damage to the legs.

The risk of diabetic complications can greatly be reduced by

  • Not smoking
  • Good control of blood sugar
  • Good control of blood pressure
  • Reducing your cholesterol level
