In brief: Yes

Although there are simple lifestyle modification that can help, i.
e. not smoking, exercising regularly, eating low fat / low cholesterol diet, & maintaining normal weight, there are also medications that can benefit. Some include statin drugs (such as Lipitor, (atorvastatin) Zocor), claudication medication (such as Cilostazol), antiplatelet meds (ASA, Plavix). Control diabetes & hypertension. See vascular expert

In brief: Vascular Disease

Vascular disease is an intrinsic part of diabetes mellitus.
Prolonged elevated blood sugars have a profound and lasting effect on the vascular and neurologic structures.. Exercise, diet changes and smoking cessation are very important !
