Background Left ventricular (LV) longitudinal myocardial systolic dysfunction (LVSD) has been identified in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients, and it should be considered the first marker of a preclinical form of DM-related cardiac dysfunction. Overweight has been postulated to contribute to the development of LVSD in T2DM patients, but the impact of amount of body fat mass on LVSD in T2DM patients remains uncertain. Methods We studied 71 asymptomatic T2DM patients with preserved LV ejection fraction (LVEF)(all≥ 55%) …
