Thank you for posting your query.
is often a sign of heart failure
. Heart failure is more common in people with diabetes
and high BP, especially if they are not well controlled.
Another cause can be hypertrophy (thickening of heart muscle wall) due to high BP.
An evaluation by a cardiologist along with echocardiogram
would be able to sort out this problem and establish the correct cardiac cause.
