Taking Diabetes to Heart (International Diabetes Federation)


posted by Research Admin on 8 October 2018

Taking Diabetes to Heart is a multi-country study, developed by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) in partnership with Novo Nordisk, focused on cardiovascular disease (CVD) awareness and knowledge among people living with type 2 diabetes.

The results show

  • People with type 2 diabetes underestimated their CVD risk, despite a high incidence of CVD events
  • People with type 2 diabetes relied heavily on their HCPs for information and advice on CVD
  • There appeared to be insufficient dialogue between some participants and their HCPs regarding CVD risk

A comprehensive report, with country specific results and a set of resources related to diabetes and CVD in particular countries and around the world, will be released in December 2018.
