Abstract

Heart failure seems to occur in adult-onset diabetics with a greater frequency than in the nondiabetic population, particularly in women. A number of such patients do not have significant occlusive disease of the major coronary arteries, or convincing small-vessel disease. A subclinical abnormality of myocardium in experimental diabetes and asymptomatic human diabetics supports the concept of a diabetic cardiomyopathy.
