abstract

  • Diabetes mellitus, especially with worse glycemic control, is independently associated with abnormal LV relaxation. The severity of abnormal LV relaxation is similar to the well-known impaired relaxation associated with HTN. The combination of DM and HTN has more severe abnormal LV relaxation than groups with either condition alone. In addition, AbnREL in DM is associated with worse glycemic control.
