If you have type 2 diabetes (T2D) and kidney disease, you’re three times more likely to die from a cardiovascular event like a heart attack or stroke. The good news is there are steps you can take to keep your heart and kidneys healthy.

Below are some resources about managing diabetes and kidney disease.
