Because diabetes mellitus substantially increases the risk of development of heart failure, we sought to establish early alterations in left ventricular systolic and diastolic function in patients with diabetes mellitus with and without coexisting systemic hypertension. We studied 134 subjects using echocardiography comprising standard 2-dimensional and conventional Doppler as well as tissue Doppler imaging. Our study demonstrated the early appearance of both left ventricular systolic and… CONTINUE READING
