Question TIA/Stroke/Heart attack

My dad was type 2 and died of a heart attck at the age of 47.
I had a TIA (mini stroke) in March and was told it could be due to my diabetes.
I was wondering if anyone else has heart/stroke issues and were you told it was related to diabetes.
Thanks

It has not happened to me personally, but I know that diabetes wrecks havoc on all areas of your body, including the cardiac and nervous system. My mother had 3 heart attacks and suffered from congestive heart failure for many years before she died at age 80. She was also diabetic (as was my sister and grandmother).
