November 9th is National Diabetes Heart Connection Day! People diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes have more than twice the risk of developing heart disease. This increased co-occurrence is essential to bring awareness to, as two out of three deaths of people with Type 2 diabetes are caused by cardiovascular disease.
With one in five adults having both type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, it is crucial that organizations can research more about what causes this correlation, as well as how to treat it. Not only will this create better health outcomes, but also lower the costs of patients who have both diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
These chronic diseases are highly preventable, and part of the National Diabetes Heart Connection Day is about encouraging others to make healthy choices in their diet and lives. Living a healthy lifestyle can help lower your risk of developing one or both diseases in your lifetime.
