Diabetes mellitus causes increased myocardial oxygen demand and subclinical diabetic cardiomyopathy. In this study, we determined the presence of left ventricular (LV) systolic and diastolic dysfunction at rest in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and investigated the relation of LV diastolic dysfunction with the metabolic syndrome (MetS), a clustering of cardiovascular risk factors. Sixty T2DM patients and 30 healthy control subjects (HS) were included in this study. All participants underwent spirometry, transthoracic echocardiography, and blood biochemistry. Diastolic function was evaluated by LV early (E) and late (A) flow velocity and transmitral early (E) and late (A) tissue Doppler velocities. E/A ratio, E/E' ratio, and deceleration time were significantly higher and A/E' ratio was significantly lower in the T2DM patients when compared with the HS group. The deceleration time was negatively correlated with body mass index (BMI; r = -0.33, P = 0.01) and mean arterial blood pressure (r = -0.38, P = 0.003). E/A ratio and E/E' ratio were positively correlated with triglyceride levels and total cholesterol levels in T2DM patients. In T2DM patients, LV systolic as well as diastolic function at rest is impaired.
