Your no more likely to develop diabetes if you have a heart disease than if you don’t have. Also with diabetes being a risk for heart disease it depends on what type you have and how good of control you have of your blood sugar levels.

Diabetes is a disease of abnormal glucose regulation - occuring either because of a failure of the pancreas to produce insulin, or due to the peripheral tissues becoming more resistant to the effects of insulin.

Heart diseases are very broad and can occur in a variety of ways, but the most common is ischaemic heart disease, which is caused by atherosclerotic plaque build-up in the coronary arteries. The cause of this mainly appears to be the deposition of cholesterol in the vessel wall, leading to a cascade of inflammatory-like events. Nothing in this step affects either of the two factors listed above - insulin production and resistance. Hence, heart disease doesn't cause diabetes.

Heart disease and diabetes do share a lot of risk factors, though - obesity, sedentary lifestyles, lack of physical activity, poor diet, smoking.
