February is American Heart Month: Heart Disease and Diabetes - What's the Connection?

Heart disease is a leading cause of death in the United States and is linked to many other diseases, including diabetes and chronic kidney disease.  Having diabetes or prediabetes puts you at increased risk for heart disease and stroke. Read Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Stroke to learn how these conditions are related. 

Visit the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases for these and other free resources.

 Colorado participates in the Million Hearts Initiative, an effort to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes over five years. You can participate too. Be one in a million - make your commitment and pledge today.
