How does diabetes affect the heart? Is it that a person whose diabetes levels aren't controlled over a period of time with high glucose levels gets affected with heart problems? or it can happen to any recently diagnosed diabetic? What are the other complications do you see for a diabetic to get heart issues?

The way it affects them is that the arteries can get damaged and fatty materials can build up. When this happens, it can restrict blood flow severely and make the heart work harder than it needs to. This in turn can cause a heart attack.
