In type 2 diabetes patients, treating diastolic function and myocardial perfusion reserve could improve aerobic exercise capacity and prevent heart failure.
Heart failure is one of the most common complications in patients with T2D. Some of the difficulties that both asymptomatic and symptomatic patients can have are left ventricular diastolic dysfunction and cardiac remodeling. These patients are classified as having stage B heart failure. Individuals with T2D are known to have problems with cardiovascular exercises. The reduced peak of VO2 (the maximum rate of oxygen consumption measured during incremental exercise) is correlated with the development of cardiovascular diseases. The purpose of this study is to understand the link between cardiovascular dysfunction and T2D, and to understand if cardiovascular dysfunction markers are associated with the peak of VO2....
