Does it? I don’t think there’s a direct causal link between high blood glucose conc. and heart disease.

However yes, prolonged periods of high glucose conc. can lead to other things like diabetes or obesity which are linked to heart disease.

From what I can see online, it seems that it damages blood vessels and tends to decrease their elasticity, so that it narrows. This can often link to reduced supply of oxygen to the heart and, it can cause high blood pressure which is also a risk factor for diabetes.
