Diabetes and Your Risk of Heart Disease - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: People who have diabetes have a higher chance of developing many health problems including heart disease. This video will show you how heart disease can develop, how it affects your health, and what you can do to help reduce your risk of heart disease. If you have diabetes, it means your blood glucose or blood sugar is elevated. Overtime, high blood sugar can damage the blood vessels of your heart and other organs leading to other health problems. This means, the longer you have diabetes, the greater your risk for heart disease. There are different types of heart disease including coronary heart disease, cardiomyopathy, arrhythmias, and heart failure. Coronary heart disease is a buildup of a cholesterol filled substance called plaque inside the blood vessels of your heart. The buildup of plaque in coronary heart disease can increase your risk of having a heart attack. Cardiomyopathy refers to diseases of your heart muscle. Cardiomyopathy may lead to abnormal heartbeats called arrhythmias. Cardiomyopathy may also lead to heart failure. This means your weakened heart can't pump enough blood to meet your body's needs. Having both diabetes and heart disease can affect you in many ways. You will have a higher risk for other serious health problems, such as a heart attack, stroke, and even death. It may be harder for you to go about your daily activities. You may need help taking care of yourself. You may also need to take more medications. Living with these conditions may cause depression. The good news is that there are things you can do to help lower your risk for heart disease. For example, you may need to make changes to your lifestyle. If you smoke, get the help you need to quit. Both smoking and diabetes can narrow your blood vessels which can increase your chance of developing heart disease or stroke. Maintain or get to a healthy weight. Follow a healthy eating plan. And get regular physical activity. Check with your healthcare provider about the right amount of physical activity for you. Make sure you work with your healthcare provider to control your blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure. This includes taking all medications prescribed by your healthcare provider, including insulin and pills to help lower blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol. Following the treatment plan you and your healthcare provider discussed will help you feel better and reduce your risk of getting heart disease.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

Noel Turner, III

Spartanburg, SC

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"

"Thank you very much for the great work on the medical exhibits. Our trial resulted in a $16 million verdict for a 9 year old boy with catastrophic injuries, and the medical illustrations definitely played key role in the trial."

David Cutt
Brayton Purcell
Salt Lake City, UT

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."
