Heart Health Month

February is Heart Health Month, and AACE wants to be one of your go-to resources to help your patients with diabetes and other endocrine disorders reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and lipid comorbidities.

While some people develop heart problems as they age, cardiovascular disease isn’t inevitable even for your patients with diabetes. There are several proactive steps your patients can take – including how they nourish their body, live and work – that may help prevent cardiovascular disease and its complications.

Sponsored by Amgen and developed by members of the AACE Lipids Scientific Committee, I AM the Face of CVD Risk, includes 10, non-CME, peer-reviewed case studies designed to assist you in identifying and assessing your patients’ risks of heart disease. The relatable, real-person videos of patients at varying levels of cardiovascular risk are just one of many resources available to you.

There’s no better time than now to take action. Early detection and treatment result in improved care and quality of life for your patients with diabetes at risk for cardiovascular disease and lipid disorders.
