"Two out of three people with diabetes today will die from heart disease or stroke. Diabetes often goes hand in hand with high blood pressure or high cholesterol, which can add to the risk for heart problems. However, by keeping up with the latest research, you can learn new ways to prevent or treat heart problems."
Headlines and topics like this help to make us understand that what we do now for the rest of our lives to stay healthy is very important! I have Diabetes Type II, along with atherosclerosis, Do You?!
"Atherosclerosis (ath"er-o-skleh-RO'sis) comes from the Greek words athero (meaning gruel or paste) and sclerosis (hardness). It's the name of the process in which deposits of fatty substances, cholesterol, cellular waste products, calcium and other substances build up in the inner lining of an artery. This buildup is called plaque. It usually affects large and medium-sized arteries. Some hardening of arteries often occurs when people grow older."
