Does weight gain cause high blood sugar and heart attack leading to death?

I currently take One injection 18 units in evening of Basaglar KwikPen., along with Javovia pill in the am each day. I have several side effects. Iam suffering severe muscle spasms in the neck and shoulder area, also severe weight gain. I started on insulin late January til current. I always kept my weight at 128 up to 130. I am petite and 4 11 . As of today my weight is 140 and I have developed fat throughout my body where I never had fat before. Went up two bra sizes and my clothes don t fit. My pants were petite 12/14, now Iam at size P18. I look and feel awful. My A1C when I started was 10 I am now down to 6.7. My question is this: Do I die from high sugar or heart attack from this gross weight gain. Also, the myalgia I am suffering is excruciating and I need to see my rheumatologist for meds on this condition. What would you recommend?

Obesity and weight gain can cause more risk for cardiovascular complications including stroke and heart attack. So follow a good diet and do frequent exercises.

how long do you have to have high blood pressure for to cause or bring on a heart attack. also how high would you have to be before you thought a heart attack or stroke was impending and seek help. also if you have high blood pressure would your pulse and blood pressure increase or decrease just prior to the attack.

HI, i am 34 years old with height 5ft 2 . My weight was 64 3 months back , now it is 58. I am having breathing trouble for last 3 months and the it was found that i have LVH heart disease caused due to high blood pressure . At that time it was 120/100. LDL Cholestrol was 123. My doctor advised me to take ENAM 2.5 daily to reduce the blood pressure .now the blood presure is normal but the breathing problem is continuing. I took the advice of another cardiologist who adviced to take AZTOR 75 daily after dinner and said that this is due to some disease called ischamia and asked me to visit after 6 weeks. If the problem remains after that also then they should go for angiography. I have done TMT test which came positive . My question is what is ischamia and how severe it is for heart attack

I am a 45 year old women and I had all the symtoms of a heart attack so I went to the ER and was given an EKG and had blood work done the test came back fine,I was given nito to put under my tounge and baby asprin, I was addmitted to the ICU and the next day I had a CT scan done and all that showed was enlarged lymph nodes in my chest. I was sent home and have to have a stress test done. I still don t feel very good I am tired and weak and I am a little light headed. I do take Crestor and have for 4 years, my BP is low/normal most of the time but it was high when I got to the ER, I also have a small 9mm mass on my patuatary glan that has not changed much in the last 3 years but I always have a headace and pressure in my head nothing seems to help it. I have gained almost 30 lbs in the last 9 months but my eating has not changed. Almost everyone on my mothers side of the family have heart proplems or have died from heart problems, my aunt had first heart attack at age 43, grandmother died from heart attack at 53 my mother had 3 stents put in at age 54, everyone has high BP even my brother and sister. With the test that came back normal could I still of had a heart attack?
