Increased left ventricular mass (LVM) is an independent cardiovascular risk marker, which often occurs independently of arterial blood pressure in type 2 diabetes. To investigate the factors related to the disproportionate increase in LVM in type 2 diabetes, we conducted a cross-sectional study. We studied 40 male type 2 diabetic patients aged 36 to 70 years with controlled blood pressure. Magnetic resonance imaging was used to measure LVM accurately. Radial arterial waveforms were recorded non… CONTINUE READING
