One of the health risks foremost on the minds of people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes is heart disease. That’s because people with diabetes are twice as likely to suffer from this condition.
Elevated blood-sugar levels cause fat to build up on the inside of artery walls, which blocks the arteries and affects blood flow to and from the heart.
Thankfully, there are a number of ways to cut down on the risk. By engaging in an exercise routine, cutting out foods that can cause heart disease, and avoiding dangerous medications, people with diabetes can help to prevent this dangerous condition.

Get started by walking 30 minutes a day, five days a week.

There are many foods and drinks that are filled with the calories, cholesterol, sodium and saturated fat that increase the risk of heart failure, including:
·         Fried chicken
·         Sausage
·         Cheesecake
·         Steak
·         Hamburgers
·         Potato chips
·         Doughnuts
·         Pasta
·         Pizza
·         Ice cream
·         Soda
·         Alcohol
It may be impossible to dump all of these goodies at once, but small steps can make a big difference. Choose alternatives like homemade burgers instead of fast food, turkey sausage instead of pork, and frozen yogurt instead of ice cream.
It’s also a good idea to take a close look at any diabetes medications that have 
been prescribed.



More than 10 million people in the world have taken the diabetes drug Actos to help manage their condition. This is a drug that lowers blood sugar by sensitizing the body to insulin. 


Unfortunately, Actos carries a black-box warning on its label because of its link to congestive heart failure. People taking Actos should talk to their doctor about alternative medications.
Actos has also been shown to increase the risk of bladder cancer by 80 percent or more. In fact, thousands of people have filed Actos Lawsuits after suffering from the medication. Other serious Actos side effects include bone fracture and eye disease.
To help prevent serious conditions, people with diabetes should take a close look at their exercise routine, their diet and their medications.
