    Hi meredydd, great question! The good news is that many of dietary change you make to manage diabetes are also good for your heart too! A great example is eating more fresh foods, including more whole grains, fresh fruit, and vegetables. All of these foods tend to be higher in fiber which is good for blood sugar control and heart health! The Mediterranean diet has also gotten a lot of attention for the positive benefits it can have on diabetes and heart disease.
