While diabetes is not actually a form of heart disease, it often contributes to heart disease. Diabetes
occurs when a body is unable to produce or respond properly to insulin which is needed to regulate
glucose (sugar). Besides contributing to heart disease, diabetes also increases the risks of developing
kidney disease, blindness, nerve damage, and blood vessel damage. More than 80 percent of people
with diabetes die from some form of heart or blood vessel disease.

There are two forms of diabetes: juvenile diabetes and adult-onset diabetes. Adult-onset diabetes is
associated with obesity and can be delayed or controlled with proper diet and exercise.

There is no cure for diabetes. However, diabetes can be controlled through changing eating habits
and exercise programs. Drugs are also available. However, even if diabetes is under control, it still
contributes to heart disease.
