Diabetic cardiomyopathy is an ill-defined entity. This study was designed to explore the possible association between left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) and cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN) independently from metabolic control. Three groups of 10 age-matched men each with well-controlled type 2 diabetes were studied: (1) subjects with normal diastolic function, (2) subjects with LVDD characterized by impaired LV relaxation, and (3) subjects with a more severe form of LVDD… CONTINUE READING
