Diabetes mellitus is a group of diseases characterized by high blood glucose levels that result from defects in the body's ability to produce and/or use insulin. The higher a person's blood sugar level is, the higher his or her risk of heart disease. Compared with people who don't have diabetes, people who have diabetes are at higher risk for heart disease.

Diabetes alone is a very serious risk factor for heart disease. other factors that can raise the risk of heart disease in people who have diabetes are high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, smoking, overweight, obesity, Lack of physical activity, unhealthy dietary pattern, Family history of early heart disease, stress etc . Individuals with insulin resistance or in combination with one or more of these risk factors are at even greater risk of heart disease or stroke.
