Dr. Trilochan Agarwala Consultant Interventional Cardiologist said that diabetic management for a cardiac patient is very important as high blood sugar can damage blood vessels and the nerves that control the heart. People with diabetes are also more likely to have other conditions that raise the risk for heart disease as high blood pressure increases the force of blood through the arteries and can damage artery walls.
