Type 2 diabetes and heart attack, any correlation?

Postby Ramola » Thu Jun 02, 2016 3:51 pm

I have heard that for a type 2 diabetic, the risk for heart attack is the same as that of someone who has already had a heart attack. Is this true? Can you help me understand the relationship between type 2 diabetes and heart disease?

A strong link between the two has been established through several studies. Having diabetes puts you at great risk for having heart disease. One of the main reasons for this is that blood vessels get damaged and this can cause blockage.
