Research shows there is a strong link between diabetes and heart disease. In fact, coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in more than half of the total diabetes population.
It can be difficult to treat heart disease when you have diabetes because your coronary arteries are usually smaller, and elevated blood-sugar levels increase risk factors during and after procedures.
