Why Diabetes Matters. Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes. Why are people with diabetes at increased risk for CVD? Diabetes is treatable, but even when glucose levels are under control it greatly increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. The following statistics speak loud and clear that there is a strong correlation between cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes. That's because people with diabetes, particularly type 2 diabetes, may have the following conditions that contribute to their risk for developing cardiovascular disease.

Cardiovascular disease is one of the major complications of diabetes and is the leading cause of early death among people with diabetes

Cardiovascular disease is one of the major complications of diabetes and is the leading cause of early death among people with diabetes. People with diabetes also have higher incidence of hypertension, dyslipidaemia, and obesity, which contribute to increased incidence of cardiovascular disease. The present article focuses on the predisposing factors, management and preventive strategies for cardiovascular disease in diabetes.

Current approaches to health promotion and prevention of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes do not approach the potential of the existing state of knowledge.
