Yes, indirectly. It is not the neuropathy that increases the chance of heart disease, rather diabetes itself which is a risk factor for heart disease.
Yes. Diabetes increases your risk of cardiovascular disease.
Yes, indirectly. Diabetes prematurely ages the blood vessels, in and of itself can increase the risk for heart attacks, angina, stroke. Also associated with neuropathy. Patients with diabetic neuropathy have increased risk of "silent" heart attacks, i.e. May not have symptoms that go with heart attacks, such as pain, discomfort, but have ekg, stress test or echo evidence of heart damage.
Yes. Diabetes is a risk for heart disease.
Yes. Diabetes can greatly damage blood vessels over time. Damage to small vessels supplying nerves in the feet are often the first signs of end-organ damage. Physicans check the urine for signs of damage to kidney filtration vessels. Eye vessels are also at risk. Large studies showed that diabetes is an independent risk factor for heart disease and attack via coronary artery disease.
Neuropathy and heart. Being a diabetic gives you increased risks of heart disease. Also, if your neuropathy is at least partly because of poor control, that increases your risk of heart disease.
Yes. Diabetic neuropathy is damage to peripherals nerves mainly at legs but can happen arms and stomach.

Follow closely with primary care doctor for in depth discussion of risks and follow up.
Silent MI. Silent mi is a real issue with diabetics. The abnormal nervous system (due to neuropathy) can make "feeling" an mi impossible.
Sort of. The neuropathy does not cause heart disease, but the conditions that cause neuropathy also cause heart, renal and vascular disease.
Diabetes. Diabetes increase chances for heart disease and neuropathy.

Heart attack risk. You do have an unfortunate family history. This history does increase your odds. The single most important thing you could do is stop smoking. After that you should get regular check ups, follow cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and weight closely. Mediterranean diet with vigorous regular exercise should be followed.
Pretty darn high. Hi. Take that family history seriously! If you're diabetic, control it aggressively. Control blood pressure aggressively. Control cholesterol aggressively with a statin (LDL.
Take charge. You can't change your genes, but you can modify other risk factors.
