IS DIABETIC PATIENT AT HIGHER RISK OF HEART
FAILURE?
Heart diseases and diabetes both are the most
common health problems nowadays. And heart
diseases are very common in people who are having
diabetes. Even the reports have proved that 65
of the people who are having diabetes are at risk
of heart diseases or stroke, it is also true that
the risk of heart diseases and stroke are more
more than twice as high in people with diabetes.
As in diabetes people have increased chance of
developing a heart disease but this condition is
more common in type 2 diabetes and in fact heart
diseases are the most common cause of death in
people having type 2 diabetes.

Causes of heart disease in people with
diabetes-
The most common cause of heart failure in the
people who are diabetic is atherosclerosis or the
hardening of the coronary arteries, which is more
commonly called as the buildup of cholesterol in
the blood vessels that help to supply Oxygen and
nutrition to the heart. When the cholesterol
plaques are formed that lead to  breakdown or
rapture and the body tries to repair it by
sending platelets to heal, but because the artery
is small the platelet can block the flow of
blood, and also not allowed the oxygen to deliver
which may lead to heart failure. This process can
happen to any arteries of the body which can also
result in lack of blood to the brain which can
cause stroke and also peripheral vascular
diseases.  When there is high blood sugar level
for a longer period of time the blood vessel can
start to get damaged which can lead to serious
heart complications.
High cholesterol- If your cholesterol is too
high, then there is deposition of extra fat in
the walls of your blood vessels. Over time, this
fat layer of fat hardens and is known as plaque.
Hard plaque can lead to block up of the blood
vessels, which makes lead to narrowing of
vessels. This is called arteriosclerosis or
atherosclerosis and is the most common cause of a
heart attack. High blood pressure- Due to the
deposition the vessels may also lead to high
blood pressure which may lead to serious
complications that include- Heart attack,
stroke, kidney problems, vision issues.

wait helps the doctor to understand the overall
risk of heart disease, here are some of the test

    measure the heart's electrical activity. The
    heartbeat is the result of electrical impulse
    that is travel through the heart.
  • An Echocardiogram (Echo)- this is done to examine
    the thickness of the heart muscles and how well
    the heart pumps

5
  • An exercise stress test -this is done to check
    the heart functions when it is in hard working
    state.
