Diabetes

About one-third of people with heart failure also have diabetes. Having diabetes and heart failure can worsen your health if the diabetes is not controlled. Because you have heart failure, it is particularly important to control your blood sugar to help prevent further complications.

If you have diabetes, you should ask your doctor or nurse about any possible side effects of your diabetes medicines on your heart failure.
