Abstract

Objective:

 

Material and Methods:

 

Results:

 

Conclusion:

 

There is a high prevalence of asymptomatic left ventricular diastolic dysfunction in

 

normotensive type 2 diabetic patients.

We enrolled 80 normotesive Type 2 diabetic patients in the study that fulfills the inclusion

 

criteria. Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction was found in 53% (43/80). There were 20 (47%) males and

23 females (53%) among subjects presenting with diastolic dysfunction. Subjects with diastolic dysfunction

the mean age were 55±15 years. Patients having no Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction mean age were

52.5±7 years.

This descriptive case series study was conducted on 80 normotesive Type 2

 

diabetic patients at Cardiology Department, PGMI Lady Reading Hospital Peshawar from March 2007 to

March 2008. Detailed history and physical examination was performed on every patient. . The glycemic

status was defined on the basis of HbA1c. Exercise tolerance test was performed on every patient to

exclude major ischemia. Echocardiography was performed in left lateral position. Main outcome measure

was Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction.

To determine the frequency of asymptomatic left ventricular diastolic dysfunction in

 

normotesive type 2 diabetic patients.
