In order to evaluate the left ventricular (LV) response to isometric exercise in diabetics, 15 young insulin-dependent diabetic subjects and 12 control subjects of similar age and sex distribution performed a handgrip test during echocardiography. No base-line differences in hemodynamic or echocardiographic parameters were found between diabetic and control subjects. The heart rate and blood pressure responses to handgrip exercise were similar in the two groups, and LV dimensions, shortening… CONTINUE READING
