Alteration in haemodynamics and pathological changes in the cardiovascular system during the development of Type 2 diabetes mellitus in OLETF rats

Abstract

The process of cardiovascular complications in Type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) is unclear. We investigated pathophysiological changes of the heart and vessels in the Otsuka Long-Evans Tokushima Fatty (OLETF) rat Type 2 DM model during a long time period. Echocardiography was carried out at 22 and 62 weeks of age of OLETF (n=10, each) and age-matched Long… (More)
