ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to assess the role of left ventricular dysfunction and hypertrophy by various diagnostic
modalities in normotensive type 2 diabetes mellitus patients. The burden of cardiovascular disease related to
diabetes mellitus has been increasing multifold day by day. Diabetes mellitus formerly thought of as a problem of
glucose metabolism, actually produces most of its harm by effect on the cardiovascular system. This is a Prospective
and Observational Study. The selection of the 50 type 2 diabetes mellitus patients was done from either inpatients
admitted for control of diabetes or out patients. 50 controls for the study were chosen from volunteering staff
members and patients attenders. Patients with diabetes shows an significant increase in the left ventricular internal
dimension, left ventricular mass, left ventricular wall thickness and diastolic dysfunction as compared to non
diabetes. We conclude that earliest detection of preclinical left ventricular abnormalities like dysfunction in both
systole and diastole and then to take preventive steps in order to arrest of halt the progress of the disease.
Key words: Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, cardiovascular disease, left ventricular mass, diastole and systole
