February 6th, 2015. Boynton Beach, FL. South Palm Cardiovascular Associates published a new article discussing the critical impact that diabetes has on a person’s risk of developing heart disease. According to these top cardiologists in Palm Beach, the risk of heart attack or a stroke is doubled among diabetics.
Diabetes is a well-known health risk, one that affects millions of Americans and is the seventh-highest cause of death in the nation. But the Palm Beach heart doctors at SPCVA want to increase public awareness of how dangerous diabetes is for the heart as well. “Diabetes increases your risk of developing all types of heart disease, but in particular makes your risk of developing coronary arterial disease and congestive heart failure extraordinarily high. Fortunately, there are ways you can not only control your diabetes, but lower your heart risk at the same time.”
South Palm Cardiovascular Associates feels that if diabetics were more aware of how much their disease puts them at risk for heart disease, they would be more proactive about seeing a Delray Beach cardiologist. To find out more, see the center’s website at: http://www.southpalmcardiovascular.com.
