Diabetes and Heart Disease
Why are People with Diabetes at Increased Risk for Cardiovascular Disease?
Heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 causes of death and disability among people with Type 2 diabetes. In fact, at least 65 percent of people with diabetes die from some form of heart disease or stroke, and adults with diabetes are two to four times more likely to have heart disease or a stroke than adults without diabetes.
The American Heart Association considers diabetes to be one of the six major controllable risk factors for cardiovascular disease. At Scottsdale Healthcare, our inpatient diabetes nurse practitioners and diabetes educators work closely with physicians and staff to coordinate care for our patients with diabetes, especially those at risk or who have already been diagnosed with cardiac disease. In addition, our experienced outpatient Diabetes Center educators can help you or a loved one learn to prevent, delay or manage diabetes and reduce the risk of complications. Scottsdale Healthcare’s diabetes management program is recognized by the American Association of Diabetes Educators.

Cardiac Educational Series
Heart Health: From our Door to Yours!
Scottsdale Healthcare now offers a free cardiac educational series to our community, presented by registered nurses from our own emergency department who care directly for patients with coronary artery disease and those suffering from heart attacks. Our nurse experts will visit your place of employment or community group to inform and educate on the causes, signs and symptoms of heart disease, the treatments available to you and how to recognize the precursors of a heart attack. Their friendly, easy-to-follow presentation will help you feel more at ease with your own heart health, and provides a list of services offered by Scottsdale Healthcare that can help diagnose and treat cardiac disease.
For more information, or to schedule an educational lecture, please call 480-882-4871.
