Type 2 diabetes & your heart
What's the connection?

Over time, high blood sugar leads to a buildup of
plaque in the arteries. This buildup
can harden and
narrow your blood vessels, reducing the flow of
oxygenated blood to the heart.
As a result,
you are more likely to have heart problems
in the future.

Millions of people with diabetes don’t know
about their increased risk for heart disease.
