Diabetes can involve blood vessels throughout the whole body, thus increasing the incidence of heart disease. How to prevent heart disease in type 2 diabetes effectively?

Check A1C regularly

Your AIC reflects your average blood glucose level for the two to three month period before the test. It can determine how well you are managing your blood sugar. The desirable value for A1C is 7 percent. Usually, the patients are recommended to take A1C test every three months. If it is out of control, you should strengthen the control of blood sugar level. A1C test plays an important role in decreasing risk of heart disease in a long term.

Blood pressure

The patients with type 2 diabetes should aim for a blood pressure level below 130/80 mmHg. Obesity is commonly seen in people with type 2 diabetes. Weight loss is an effective way to controlling blood pressure. Meanwhile, it is good to the control of blood sugar level. Taking moderate exercise like jogging, walking, taichi can help prevent high blood pressure. Meanwhile, exercise also can improve cardic function. Thereby, it can reduce the risk of heart disease. Of course, limiting the consumption of salt also plays a vital role in controlling blood pressure.

Cholesterol

Too much of cholesterol in your blood can cause the accumulation of fatty deposits in the arteries, which reduces blood flow. If the heart can not get ample blood supply, it will work less efficiently. Therefore, the patients with type 2 diabetes should limit the intake of foods high in fat to avoid high levels of cholesterol.

In order to reduce the risk of heart disease in type 2 diabetes, you should speak with your healthcare provider about more ways to keep your A1C, blood pressure and cholesterol in control.
