Dr. Susan Wingo answered:

Can cardiovascular disease lead to diabetes?

It can seem that way

Open-uri20120707-20926-1j8v4uy
Many people with cardiovascular disease may have diabetes or prediabetes that is only recognized after they have heart problems. In actuality, though, the glucose metabolism was abnormal for some time before the heart disease was discovered, and changes associated with the sugar abnormalities including high blood pressure & high cholesterol likely contributed to the heart disease.

Hello docs, is cardiovascular disease curable?

Not yet.

Cardiovascular
The disease is multifactorial. The largest endocrine organ of the body is the vascular endothelium. A lot of research is going on. Once aging gets tackled, a cure for cardiovascular disease should follow. Genetic engineering may be required. The endocrine function of the endothelium needs to be completely understood. 300years from Newton to interplanetarysatellitesandspacetravel.Maybe longer4this.

Dr. Irv Loh answered:

How can smoking cause cardiovascular disease?

Damage vessel lining

Cardiovascular_diseases
Arteries are lined with active, protective "paver" endothelial cells. Tobacco, especially from smoking, releases into the blood stream active chemicals, like nicotine and "free radicals", that disrupt the integrity of these protective liner cell. Once the cells are damaged, the arteries are MORE susceptible to damage from common risk factors, and destabilization of any underlying plaque. Bad news!
