The purpose of this investigation was to determine if endurance exercise training would alter the degenerative effects of streptozotocin diabetes on cardiac function and alter the responses of streptozotocin diabetic rats to induced myocardial ischemia. Diabetic rats experienced a significant (p < 0.05) reduction in cardiac function as evidenced by left ventricular peak systolic pressure (LVPSP), maximal time rate of change of pressure (+dP/dTmax), rate pressure product (RPP), and heart rate… CONTINUE READING
