Diabetes is a chronic disease characterized by elevated glucose (sugar) in the blood. A hormone called insulin helps glucose enter cells to provide them with energy. In people with diabetes, the body either does not produce enough insulin or does not use it properly. High blood sugar accelerates arterial obstruction and organ damage such as the brain, heart, kidneys, and retinas (acceleration of atherosclerosis).

So, can diabetes be considered a cardiovascular disease? Clearly, the most important complications such as heart馃挃 or brain馃infarctions (CVD: cerebrovascular event), kidney damage (renal insufficiency), blindness, and amputations stem from vascular artery injury. Prevention馃 and early treatment are key, with a team of highly trained specialists you can achieve a better quality of life, avoiding emergency hospitalizations and interventions as well.
