Because of the unusually high blood sugar level found in many diabetics, calcium, fat and cholesterol (also known as plaque) can build up in the arteries of the heart. This can cause chest pain and discomfort, and in extreme cases, heart attacks and death. Even if the plaque happens to clog the artery, a slight buildup can still cause the heart muscles to tire easily and can lead to heart failure. The structure and function of the heart can also be damaged due to the unusual circumstances diabetes can cause in the blood and arteries.
