Health conditions that affect our heart and blood vessels are known as cardiovascular disease. These conditions can lead to serious problems including angina (chest pain), heart attack, stroke and vascular dementia.
There are a range of factors that can affect our risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Two of the major risk factors are the amount of cholesterol and sugar (glucose) in our blood.
High levels of cholesterol can cause narrowing of blood vessels, increasing our risk of cardiovascular disease. High blood sugar (glucose) can indicate that you may have diabetes or be at high risk of diabetes. The high sugar levels cause damage to blood vessels and this can make cardiovascular disease more likely to occur.
Importantly, it is possible to lower the amount of cholesterol and sugar in our blood, and this can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
