Symposium Session #115057- Diabetes and Heart Disease
Suggested CDR learning codes: 4040, 5160, 5190; Level 2
Studies suggest that people with diabetes have the same risk of suffering a heart attack as those without diabetes who already have had a heart attack. This troubling correlation between diabetes and heart disease shows that RDs must be vigilant in stressing heart health for patients living with diabetes. This session reviews the link between diabetes and heart disease, discusses practice recommendations by the American Diabetes Association, and identifies strategies for heart disease prevention and treatment among people with diabetes.
