ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- While many people living with Type 2 diabetes may understand the impact the condition can have on their health, there is a major risk that many do not know about.

Dr. Travis Stork joined us from New York to spread word about the ‘For Your Sweetheart’ campaign.

The initiative raises awareness of the link between diabetes and heart disease. It encourages people with type 2 diabetes to know their heart disease risk and speak to their healthcare provider, for the sake of their health and the people they cherish the most.

The E.R. physician is a Host on The Doctors TV show, which airs on our sister station, KPLR 11 weekdays at 8 a.m.
