Diabetes is considered a coronary artery disease equivalent, meaning it is weighed as high as coronary artery disease when evaluating risk factors for various things such as high cholesterol.  Diabetes causes microvascular and macrovascular disease and thus affects blood vessels throughout the body including in the eye, the kidneys and the heart.  However, having well controlled diabetes can be almost equivalent to not having it at all as far as cardiac disease and thus diabetes should be well followed and treated to prevent cardiovascular disease.
