Diabetes and Heart Disease Risk Infographic Now Available

Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death among people with type 2 diabetes. Compared with those who don’t have diabetes, women with the condition have about 4 times greater risk for heart disease, while men with the condition have about twice the risk. To help patients better understand this condition and how it affects them, the ACC’s CardioSmart team has created an infographic that can be downloaded for free, as well as a new diabetes and heart disease condition center.
