Diabetes and cardiovascular disease

There is a strong correlation between cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes. At least 68 percent of people age 65 or older with diabetes die from some form of heart disease; and 16% die of stroke. Diabetes is treatable, but even when glucose levels are under control it greatly increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. That's because people with diabetes, particularly type 2 diabetes, may have the following conditions that contribute to their risk for developing cardiovascular disease

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Abnormal cholesterol and high triglycerides
  • Obesity
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Poorly controlled blood sugars (too high) or out of normal range
