Preventing Heart Disease
Patients with diabetes are twice as likely to have heart disease. That’s why we work hard to help our patients lower their risk for developing heart disease and stroke. And, the good news is that lifestyle changes and the right medication can help put them back on track.
Joslin Diabetes Center’s Cardiovascular Risk Reduction Clinic is completely focused on helping patients improve their heart and vascular health. Our team includes two diabetologists that specialize in lipid management and other cardiovascular risk factors. We also partner with nurse educators and dietitians to help patients change their diet and make other life changes.
