What is the Connection Between Diabetes and Heart Disease?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

What is the Connection Between Diabetes and Heart Disease?

Our body cells are responsible for the essential breakdown of food into energy, as it is vital for our body functioning. Cells break down food into glucose and then convert glucose into energy through insulin, which is an important hormone in the body. Diabetes is associated with the inappropriate functioning of insulin and can be classified into two types: Type I and Type 2 Diabetes. In type I Diabetes, the body does not make enough insulin. In type 2 diabetes, the cell do not use insulin properly.

Both conditions cause blood glucose levels to rise in the body. Diabetes is more than one disease as it poses serious health risks. People with diabetes are at risk of developing a host of problems such as stroke, hypertension, nerve damage, skin, eyes and kidney problems. High amount of blood sugar level can cause damage to the blood vessels leading to blocked arteries restricting blood flow to the heart. Poor blood glucose control can lead to high blood pressure and other blood lipid abnormalities including high levels of HDL (good cholesterol) and triglycerides.

The link between cardiovascular disease and diabetes is well established by medical science. It is estimated that 65% of people with diabetes die of heart disease, which makes it a leading cause of all deaths among diabetic patients. Doctors refer to this connection as DHD- Diabetic Heart Disease. The term Diabetic Heart Disease covers coronary heart disease; narrowing of the arteries, heart failure; minimising heart’s capacity to pump enough blood and diabetic cardiomyopathy; alteration in the structure and function of the heart.

A sedentary lifestyle with little or no physical activity, smoking, stressful life and unhealthy eating habits all contribute to weight gain, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart diseases and diabetes. Thus, weight and lifestyle issues management is the best way to prevent and control such health risks.

Let’s look at some simple but effective ways towards a healthy lifestyle:

  1. Physical exercise: Adopt a 30 minute exercise rule to remain healthy and fit. For diabetic patients, a morning and evening walk is highly recommended. You could walk, run, gym, climb stairs, do yoga, aerobics or other physical activity that interests you.
  2. Eat healthy: Avoid fried and packaged foods as they are full of fats, salt and sugar. Include seasonal vegetables and fruits in your diet and drink plenty of water. Dieticians recommend eating a heart-healthy diet including superfoods like broccoli, spinach, berries and fibre rich meal.
  3. Weight management: Keeping weight under check is an effective way to prevent the risk of heart diseases. Consult a dietician for a customised diet plan as per your medical condition.
  4. Be positive: Stress is a silent killer and a major contributor to all lifestyle diseases. Remain calm and manage your negative thoughts to overcome stress.

Health is the ultimate treasure you have! Preserve it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

There's a higher rate of cardiac problems faced by people suffering from respiratory ailments as low levels of oxygen in blood does trigger a heart attack. Get investigation done for blockages in heart by angiography or cardiac ct scan and get him treated for blockages as there can be blockages in the brain too, causes of heart attack and stroke are same, reason for blackouts and fainting attacks. Get her checked and follow advice of your doctor.

Lybrate-user, start with a salt and calorie restricted diet. Do moderate activities for at least 30 minutes per day. Avoid junk food and excessive caffeinated /alcoholic drinks. Monitor your blood pressure on a daily basis. Also do tests for thyroid, sugar and cholesterol. Report back if blood pressure remains on the higher side.

Which steroid best for size gain or muscles without any side effect such acne ,high blood pressure, liver damage.
These is no steroid which has zero side effects. All drug based or added steroids have detrimental effect. It does not matter what claims supplements make. There is no lasting good effect. You may build muscles in un-natural manner. But in a few years. You will suffer. You should try natural, food based, exercise based options for a healthy body and mind. You are young. Don't ruin your future health with such options. Have a healthy diwali. Best wishes.

Hi Sudip Following things needs to be done:- 1. He needs to go for a thorough check up by a qualified physician, for that you should consult the doctor who is treating him for the heart problem. Blood pressure should be monitored regularly. 2. Routine blood tests are required to rule out any advanced pathology which may be developing in some organ. 3. Assuming that he is under medication for his heart problems there are some medicines which are known to cause swelling of the feet if taken for long; in that case the medicine needs to identified and replaced by a suitable one. 4. Other than these he should maintain a healthy lifestyle with proper physical exercise; in his case walking is best. 5. Diet should be maintained properly with a balance of all nutrients.

You will need to continue medications as per the advise of your cardiologist. Just having CABG doesn't mean blockages cannot recur or appear in new places, so medicines are important. Please follow the advise of your doctor.
