Impairment of diastolic function in middle-aged type 1 (insulin-dependent) and type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetic patients free of cardiovascular disease

M UusitupaK Pyörälä


Left ventricular systolic and diastolic function was studied using systolic time intervals and echocardiography in 19 male and 17 female patients with Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes, 24 male and 15 female patients with Type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes and 24 male and 24 female control subjects. The subjects for the present study were selected from a population based study in which 117 Type 1 and 510 Type 2 diabetic patients and 649 non-diabetic subjects were originally examined. After exclusions, none of the subjects had any evidence of coronary heart disease, hypertension or other diseases known to affect left ventricular function. There were no consistent differences in systolic time intervals or echocardiographic variables of systolic function between patients with Type 1 diabetes and non-diabetic control subjects; but patients with Type 2 diabetes showed an increased fractional shortening. Female patients with Type 2 diabetes showed an increased left ventricular mass not explicable by hypertension. Isovolumic relaxation period was longer in male (86 +/- 3 ms; mean +/- SEM) and female patients (84 +/- 6 ms) with Type 2 diabetes than in male (76 +/- 3 ms; p less than 0.05) and female (71 +/- 3 ms; p less than 0.05...Continue Reading

Cardiovascular Disease Pathophysiology

Cardiovascular disease involves several different processes that contribute to the pathological mechanism, including hyperglycemia, inflammation, atherosclerosis, hypertension and more. Vasculature stability plays a critical role in the development of the disease. Discover the latest research on cardiovascular disease pathophysiology here.

Autoimmune Diabetes & Tolerance

Patients with type I diabetes lack insulin-producing beta cells due to the loss of immunological tolerance and autoimmune disease. Discover the latest research on targeting tolerance to prevent diabetes.
