Diabetes and the heart

Diabetes elevates the risk of developing heart disease, and patients with diabetes often present specific risk factors, like hypertension or elevated cholesterol levels, which further enhance their susceptibility to experiencing heart attacks or strokes. In this informative webinar, former SA Heart Association president Dr Leonard Steingo will examine the complex links between diabetes and the heart and will examine approaches to management.
