To assess the prevalence of left ventricular diastolic dysfunction in a population of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus; to determine correlation of diastolic dysfunction with heart rate and its variability. The study included 202 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Echocardiography was performed with special reference to diastolic function, and heart rate variability was analysed using standard deviation of normal RR intervals, root mean square of successive differences and percentage… CONTINUE READING
