In collaboration with the Belgian Heart Ligue, the Belgian Heart Foundation created a campaign on the relation between Diabetes and Cardiovascular diseases.
The aim is to raise awareness to heart or diabetes patients, about the risks of developing an additional condition.
- 1 adult in 10 in Belgium has diabetes (for 90 to 95% of them, it is Type 2 diabetes)
- People that have diabetes have 2 to 4 higher risk to develop cardiovascular diseases and 2/3 of patients die from it.
