Diabetes and Heart Attacks

Some alarming new information for diabetics who suffer a heart attack.

Diabetes affects about 20-million Americans.

A new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows people with diabetes are more likely to die within a year of their first heart attack.

Diabetics do not produce or properly use insulin, which helps regulate blood sugar.

High blood sugar can damage blood vessels.
