Unlikely: Unlikely that DM caused AS. However DM does accelerate atherosclerotic and inflammatory process involved in plaque build up in coronary arteries and other vasculature which is a similar process involved in thickening and hardening of valves. SOB - shortness of breath needs to be worked up... Check with your doc... You will need stress testing...
