AIMS Cardiovascular autonomic function is often assessed in patients with diabetes by measuring heart rate variability and baroreflex sensitivity, the heritability of which is not fully understood. The present study was aimed to determine the effects of genetic and environmental factors on heart rate variability and baroreflex sensitivity in monozygotic and dizygotic adult healthy twin pairs. METHODS A total of 101 (63 monozygotic, 38 dizygotic) adult twin pairs (n = 202; mean age 44.3 years… CONTINUE READING
