February is American Heart Month!

Insulin's Relationship to Blood Pressure and Heart Disease?
Diabetes
 
New research shows that high levels of blood sugar and insulin in the bloodstream may be an independent risk factor for developing high blood pressure. While we know sugar is damaging, we are learning that the sugar-lowering hormone insulin can damage small blood vessels, triggering a rise in blood pressure.

What does a high insulin body look like? More often than not, it is an "apple-shape" body-type with truncal (stomach area) fat to indicate high insulin levels and poor sugar control.

Poor diet, lack of exercise, and high stress all strongly contribute to the development of blood sugar issues and high insulin which will damage the heart and vessels.

If you have heart disease in your family or are concerned about your risk, February - National Heart Month, is the perfect time to set new goals for your health and longevity.
