♥ If you have type 2 diabetes, understanding
your risk for heart disease is one of the most
important things you can do—for the sake of
your health and the people you cherish most.
♥ But the good news is, the sooner you
understand your risk, the sooner you can
talk to your healthcare provider to learn more
about the link between type 2 diabetes and
heart disease. Learn about the connection.
Recognize your risk. Talk to your
healthcare provider. Spread the word.
The sooner the better.
♥ That is because people with diabetes are
two to four times more likely to develop
cardiovascular disease than people without
diabetes.1 That means you may have a higher
chance of having heart disease, stroke or even
dying—precious time lost with those who
mean the most.
♥ Scheduling an appointment with your
healthcare provider is an important first step
to addressing the link between type 2 diabetes
and heart disease.
