  • Type 2 diabetes is a potent, independent risk factor for heart failure. Risk of heart failure in diabetic patients cannot be fully explained by incident MI and coexisting cardiovascular risk factors. Mechanisms directly related to diabetes and impairing cardiac function should be studied and identified.
