Survey reveals most people don’t know heart disease is the No. 1 killer of people with type 2 diabetes

A new national survey of more than 1,500 adults, including 501 who have type 2 diabetes, finds that three out of four Americans and two out of every three people with type 2 diabetes don’t know that heart disease is the number one health-related killer of people with type 2 diabetes. The survey also finds more than half (52 percent) of adults with type 2 diabetes do not understand that they are at an increased risk for heart disease and related life-threatening events, such as heart attack, stroke or even death.
