National Diabetes Month 2019
Take Diabetes to HeartRolfe Bautista | CU Innovations Nov 18, 2019
This November, CU Innovations stands in support of National Diabetes Month. The NIH’s theme for 2019 is “Take Diabetes to Heart” as a way to raise awareness of how diabetes increases the risk of cardio vascular disease.
According to the NIH, diabetes doubles a person’s chances of dying from heart disease or stroke because blood glucose can damage blood vessels and nerves that control the heart. The poster below, created by the NIH, provides an quick guide to manage your diabetes to lower your risk for heart disease and stroke.
