2. Diabetes

Diabetes is another common cause of stable angina. This is because those with diabetes, particularly poorly controlled diabetes, often experience a thickening of the blood due to the presence of excess glucose. This thickening of the blood causes the heart to strain while pumping, and it is this strain that sometimes leads to stable angina.
