Chest Pain due to Diabetic


I am 40 years of age and diabetic since last 9 years. For the last couple of months I have been having chest pain after having food. I have got all heart & Gastro related checks i.e. TMT,ECHO,Angiography ,Endoscopy etc and everything is normal. As per doctor it could be due to Diabetic.

I would like to know if someone have similar experience and if yes what treatment was taken.

  • dear naveen,

    if you have seen good doctors ,

    the only thing is to wait. because it is the beginning of something which is unable to present through tests.

    see you have it only after a meal.

    quite probably it is due to the food.

    one experiment you do.

    split the meal.

    that is take half meal now and take rest after two hours.

    this is what i do.

    are you over weight. if so reduce.

    bs levels?

    what medicines you take?

    see an opinion

    from mayo clinic


    "How much do the symptoms of heartburn and heart attack overlap?

    Heartburn, angina and heart attack may feel very much alike. Even experienced doctors can't always tell the difference from your medical history and a physical exam. That's why if you go to the emergency room because of chest pain, you'll immediately have tests to rule out a heart attack."

    there is no such thing as chest pain due to diabetes.

    though diabetes can cause heart disease and the like which in turn can cause an angina

    good luck.

  • Thanks for reply, I have got my checkup done in Manipal & Fortis Hospital in Bangalore so I hope doctors are good enough to advice but issue is they are working out on ruling out things like Heart issue or Gastro issue but none are providing reason for it and saying may be its due to Diabetic.

    I am 82 Kg and 5 Feet 8 inches so weight wise I am little over weight but not too much.

    I was on glycomet Trio 2 ,Razel 5 & Thyronorm 150 mg till 2 weeks back and after the pain the I am on Forsiga 10 mg & Onglyza instead of Trio 2 and rest of the medicine are same plus ecosprin 75 mg.

  • dear goyal,

    the doctors are doing in the right direction =ruling out one after other is the only way out.

    you try my split meal suggestion to give them a clue.

    "may be its due to Diabetic."

    is having no direct meaning.

    the mayo clinic also can be right.

    173 cm 82 kg is 27.4 bmi

    but even that is high for a diabetic.

    21/22 bmi is the best for all .

    you need to be only 21.7 bmi at 65 kg.

    you have to reduce 17 kg.

    ignore if any one says bmi is nonsense.they have no scientific basis.

    good luck

  • Can you please give details of your chest pain ? Site and side of chest pain, any radiation of pain towards shoulder and arms,any relation to related abdominal condition, etc. Continuous or intermittent ,any disturbance of sleep due to pain .

  • It was radiating towards left side Jaw and ear however after recent changes in medicines and my own effort to walk and exercise it has reduced a lot but after lunch I can feel its radiating towards arm pits and back.

  • Get yourself checked for cardiac issues. Better be safe than sorry. If that's fine, then it's related to food/digestion. 5'8 and 82 means lot of tummy bulge.

  • Generally diabetics don't feel pain in chest due to cardiac causes and investigations have ruled out any cardiac pathology. Sometimes simple spasm of chest muscles is the culprit which improves with regular dose of aspirin and some b.complex, preferably injections. But as you are improving nothing more needs to done.
