OBJECTIVE Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) is considered a precursor of diabetic cardiomyopathy, while the metabolic syndrome (MetS) is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. This study aimed to evaluate the association between LVDD, MetS and glucose metabolism disturbances classified by oral glucose(More)
BACKGROUND Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) is considered a precursor of diabetic cardiomyopathy, while insulin resistance (IR) is a precursor of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and independently predicts heart failure (HF). We assessed whether IR and abnormalities of the glucose metabolism are related to LVDD. METHODS We included 208(More)
BACKGROUND Insulin-like growth factor binding protein-7 (IGFBP-7) modulates the biological activities of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). Previous studies demonstrated the prognostic value of IGFBP-7 and IGF-1 among patients with systolic heart failure (HF). This study aimed to evaluate the IGF1/IGFBP-7 axis in HF patients with preserved ejection(More)
