How is a healthy heart related to balanced blood sugar control? Heart 3

A healthy heart and balanced blood sugar may seem to be entirely unrelated but in medical reality they are very closely connected.

In fact, what you eat and how you metabolize sugar has a direct impact on the stress load to your heart.

Not only does persistent high blood sugar trigger changes in your weight and metabolism . . .

Too much sugar can cause INFLAMMATION in the blood vessels that lead toward the heart. This damaging process can create a path of destruction that directly affects the heart.

Once the blood vessels are stuck in a cycle of inflammation the heart is at risk for immediate and long term disease.
