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.
