Left ventricular (LV) function and dimensions were assessed with Doppler and M-mode echocardiography in 26 men and 17 women with newly diagnosed non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, and in 13 healthy control men and 13 women. The diabetic men had lower peak filling rate normalized to mitral stroke volume than the control men (mean +/- standard error of the mean, 4.2 +/- 0.1 vs 4.9 +/- 0.3 stroke volume/s, p less than 0.01). The diabetic women had increased LV mass (102 +/- 12 vs 86 +/- 8 g… CONTINUE READING
