Eleven type-I (insulin-dependent) diabetic patients with abnormal changes in left ventricular function in response to cold stress (CS) were investigated to try and determine the cause of these abnormal responses. Resting M-mode echocardiography demonstrated that all 11 patients had normal left ventricular dimensions and wall motion, thereby excluding overt(More)
Despite better control of diabetic patients the morbidity and mortality from heart disease is significantly higher than in non-diabetics. While this may be a result of premature atherosclerosis or primary diabetic cardiopathy, the possibility of oral hypoglycemic agents having adverse cardiac effects must be considered. Using nuclear angiography the effect(More)
The current study investigated the effects of different levels of feed intake during 4 short periods of gestation and of housing systems on sow and litter performance. A total of 255 multiparous sows were allotted to 1-4 dietary treatments using a randomized complete block design blocking by initial body weight (BW), backfat (BF) and parity. Sows were(More)
Four dynamic tests of cardiac function were compared in a group of 13 long-standing insulin-dependent diabetics who had no clinical evidence of cardio-respiratory disease. One patient developed abnormal features during 24 hour ambulatory electrocardiograms while all 13 patients had normal exercise electrocardiograms. The change in left ventricular ejection(More)
