Diabetes and cardiovascular diseases are major contributors to the global challenge of chronic diseases. It’s hard to imagine, but 60,000 people die every day from cardiovascular disease or diabetes complications—one person every 1.5 seconds.1 Although well-established treatments and prevention options are available, the threat is still increasing at an alarming rate. Unchecked, it will continue to overwhelm healthcare systems, creating spiraling costs and devastating millions more lives every year.

About diabetes and cardiovascular diseases

Although distinct as therapeutic areas, a link exists between the two with diabetes being a prime risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Diabetes also affects the heart muscle, causing both systolic and diastolic heart failure.2

With rapidly increasing prevalence and associated healthcare costs, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases are a growing burden for healthcare systems worldwide. Despite effective therapeutic solutions, significant advances and life-changing medicines, the management of these diseases is a 24/7 task.
