I am wondering if it is common to get bradycardia with diabetes. I just received a ekg, and was told now I have bradycardia.

Heart problems of many kinds have been known to be associated with diabetes. In my case, I had a stroke in 1994 that was caused by a blood clot that broke loose from my heart then lodged in my brain, almost killing me. Ten years later, another clot completely blocked an important vessle in my heart causing a heart attack; again nearly killing me. To this day, I survive with a pacemaker and multiple cardiac meds. I have my diabetes to thank for all of this.
