You Gotta Have Heart

Resolute Integrity DES_Heart Disease & Diabetes Infographic

A big thank you to Beth Dole.  I found that graphic on her blog.  You can read her entire post here. It’s important information.  And, while it says “U. S. patients…”, the basic message that those with Diabetes have a higher risk for heart disease applies to all – unless you control the disease.

Look at that graphic, again.  Diabetes is deadly – no two ways about it.  But…and it’s a huge but…you can control it.  YOU actually can determine if you have heart disease as a complication from Diabetes.

How do you insure you don’t have complications from Diabetes?  I’m glad you asked. There are only three things you need to do to win your War On Diabetes.

  1. Diet – lower in carbohydrates with emphasis on fresh vegetables and some protein.
  2. Exercise – 30 minutes a day, five or six days a week.  Walking is a greta place to start.
  3. Meds – Take them as your doctor prescribed – don’t miss doses.

It’s just that simple.  Nothing tricky or complex.  No radiation or chemo-therapy.  No experimental procedures.  The road is pretty well known and has been well marked by those who have gone before you.  Please, for your sake and the sake of those you love, manage and control your Diabetes.  You can win your War On Diabetes.

As always, thank you for reading.  Together, we can beat Diabetes.



I am not a doctor or health professional. I am just a guy who is working everyday to control Type 2 Diabetes. My goal is to offer hope, help and solutions for day-to-day living for the diabetic. The disease can be controlled. It can be managed. And, you can do it!
