Prevalence of Diastolic Dysfunction among Asymptomatic Normotensive Diabetics
Keywords:Diastolic dysfunction,diabetes mellitus
LV diastolic dysfunction is one of the earliest signs of myocardial involvement in diabetes and hence,an
important component in diabetic cardiomyopathy.It is also an important predictor of heart failure and
longterm mortality. Diabetics have a 2.5 fold inceased risk of heart failure.It is suggested that early detection
of diastolic dysfunction by echocardiography can lead to institution of early measures for prevention of
heart failure.The aim of this study is to find the prevalence of diastolic dysfunction in asymptomatic diabetic
patients by echocardiography.
