Heart Attack May Lead to Diabetes

Ask Glen!

Q. Glen, Can having a heart attack lead to other complications?

A. Yes, It can lead to Diabetes.

It's bad enough if you have a heart attack. There are plenty of health concerns you will have going forward to make sure you take care of yourself. But now it's thought that a heart attack may be a forewarning of diabetes.

Doctors have long known that diabetes makes heart disease, including heart attacks, more likely. Now, the new study shows that the pathway from diabetes to heart attacks is a two-way street.

None of the 8,300 Italians surveyed had diabetes or prediabetes when the study began. But after an average follow-up time of 3.5 years, 62 percent developed one of the two forms.

In short, the heart attack survivors were much more likely than the general public to be diagnosed with diabetes or prediabetes, according to the researchers, who included Dariush Mozaffarian, MD, of Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health.
