Diabetes and Cardiovascular Diseases

Adults with diabetes are more prone to cardiovascular complications (6% of individuals) such as atherosclerosis which narrows the arteries and leads to reduced blood flow to the heart. Partial blockage of the coronary arteries produces angina pectoris and complete blockage leads to stroke. Atherosclerosis also leads to strokes and complete blockage of blood flow to the brain and arterial disease - poor blood supply to the legs. These are the leading causes of death for people with diabetes.
