Patients with type 2 diabetes often have impaired exercise capacity compared with nondiabetic subjects. Left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction has been shown to limit exercise performance in nondiabetic subjects. Men with well-controlled type 2 diabetes were divided into 2 groups: normal LV diastolic function (group 1, n = 9) or LV diastolic dysfunction (group 2, n = 10) based on standard echocardiographic criteria using pulmonary veins and transmitral flow recordings. They were matched… CONTINUE READING
