Abstract

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 long term 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.
