Mayo Clinic Minute – Strategies to reduce diabetes and heart disease

Heart disease remains a leading cause of death around the world. And diabetes is one of the risk factors for heart disease. Diabetes is a growing global health concern with more than 422 million people living with this metabolic disorder —the majority of those with Type 2 diabetes.
