Left ventricular diastolic impairment in type 1 diabetic patients with microalbuminuria.


The high incidence of cardiac mortality in type 1 diabetic patients is further increased when diabetic nephropathy is present. Since microalbuminuria (albumin excretion rate > 30 mg/day) represents an incipient stage of diabetic nephropathy, we decided to investigate whether incipient renal changes correlate with early diastolic cardiac dysfunction, known… (More)
