Answers to Common Diabetes Questions

Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about diabetes.

Does proper diabetes management reduce a person’s risk of developing heart disease?

Managing your diabetes can also reduce your risk for developing heart disease, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Maintaining a healthy weight, losing some weight if you are overweight, making healthy diet choices and exercising routinely all are ways to help manage your diabetes and also can help reduce the risk of heart disease, according to the ADA.

People with diabetes need to keep three sets of health statistics in check to help lower their risk of heart disease, according to the ADA. Those are:

  • A1C
  • Blood pressure
  • Cholesterol

Talk with your physician for more information about how good diabetes management can help reduce your risk of heart disease.
