SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- For people who are suffering from diabetes, Diabacor warns that there are other risks, and one of the greatest is cardiovascular disease (CVD). CVD is commonly seen in people with diabetes, and is one of the leading causes in death for this group of people. Diabetes can increase the risks of CVD by two to four times the normal chances, and having high glucose levels can increase both the causes and effects of CVD, including the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, and coronary artery disease. Obviously, if an individual does not take control of their diabetes, it can lead to these many other dangerous health issues. Fortunately, Diabacor knows that there are ways to monitor this disease and to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease. Here are the best ways to do so.

1. Diet: Avoiding foods high in saturated fats, cholesterol, sodium, trans-fats, and sugars can decrease the risk of CVD. Including more fiber, lean meat, nuts, and low-fat dairy products into one's diet can all help the body stay healthy and avoid the effects of CVD and diabetes.
2. Weight: Obesity increases the risks of cardiovascular disease, so it is important to maintain a healthy weight. This can be done in part by sticking to a healthy diet that cuts the foods that increase CVD and includes more fiber and omega-3 fatty acids than carbs and saturated fats. It can also be done with exercise. Just an hour or so a day of exercise can help the body to stay at the right weight and can also have benefits for people with high blood pressure problems.
3. Do not smoke: Smoking increases the health risks for both diabetes and CVD, and one of the best things that an individual can do to help these diseases is to cut this habit out of their life.
4. Listen to a doctor: Doctors may recommend diet plans or provide medications that will help with the effects of these diseases. It is important to follow these instructions and reap the benefits of the effects that they have on these diseases.
Diabacor is sure that following these tips and being aware of the risks of cardiovascular disease for diabetics will help anyone suffering from diabetes to be able to prevent falling victim to the effects of CVD.
