Diastolic dysfunction is not related to changes in glycaemic control over 6 months in type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus. A cross-sectional study.
Diastolic dysfunction may be the earliest marker of a diabetes-induced heart muscle disease which leads to the progressive development of cardiac failure. Left ventricular diastolic function was indirectly assessed using pulsed wave Doppler ultrasound mitral-flow velocities in 20 normotensive patients with a new diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus, normal cardiac function and no evidence of coronary artery disease and in 16 age-matched normal subjects.
