BACKGROUND Type 2 diabetes is a cardiovascular risk factor. It remains to be elucidated in a large, population-based sample whether diabetes is associated with changes in left ventricular (LV) structure and systolic function independent of obesity and systolic blood pressure (BP). METHODS AND RESULTS Among 1950 hypertensive participants in the HyperGEN Study without overt coronary heart disease or significant valve disease, 20% (n=386) had diabetes. Diabetics were more likely to be women… CONTINUE READING
