Control Diabetes / Protect Your Heart

Ask Glen!

Q. Glen, Does Diabetes have anything to do with Heart Disease?

A. Yes, But if you Control your Diabetes you can Protect your Heart! Up to 75 percent of those with diabetes go on to develop heart and blood-vessel diseases. Because of this strong link with heart disease, it's important for those with diabetes to take extra steps to protect their health. If you already have diabetes, you can delay the progression of the disease — and prevent or slow the development of heart, blood vessel, and other complications — by following a heart-healthy lifestyle and taking the following diabetes-specific steps:
  • Eat your meals and snacks at around the same times each day.
  • Check with your doctor about physical activities that are best for you.
  • Take your diabetes medicine at the same times each day.
  • Check your blood sugar every day. Each time you check your blood sugar, write the number in your record book. Call your doctor is your numbers are too high or too low for 2 to 3 days.
  • Check your feet every day for cuts, blisters, sores, swelling, redness, or sore toenails.
  • Brush and floss your teeth and gums every day.
  • Take any prescribed medication for other conditions, such as coronary heart disease.
  • Check with your doctor about taking aspirin each day if you have heart disease.
