Heart Disease and Diabetes
Cardiovascular disease and diabetes often go hand in hand. Heart disease is number one killer of men and women in the United States and the leading cause of diabetes-related disabilities and deaths.
Both diseases are highly preventable. According to research, maintaining better lifestyle habits may prevent up to 80 percent of heart disease and 90 percent of type 2 diabetes. Lifestyle changes and proper care can make a big difference if you have these two conditions, or what's known as metabolic syndrome.

The Latest Research
Our doctors are doing research today that will help us provide more advanced treatments in the future. We’re developing a non-invasive method for early detection of coronary artery disease in patients with Type 2 diabetes. And we’re also using some the most advanced imaging technology available to study the unique differences in how heart disease develops in women and men, and researching high blood pressure (hypertension).
