Title: Functional heart remodeling and cardiorespiratory exercise capacity in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus - a randomized controlled trial
Authors: Backx, Annelies
Advisors: HANSEN, Dominique
Issue Date: 2018
Publisher: UHasselt
Abstract: This randomized controlled trial aimed to determine the association of T2DM with heart functioning and the role of N-terminal proBrain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) as biomarker. Besides this, the cardiorespiratory fitness (VO2peak) was examined in T2DM. In conclusion, accompanied by normal [blood NT-proBNP], asymptomatic T2DM patients showed signs of diastolic dysfunction (DD) on TTE, suggesting DCM. An association between T2DM and exercise capacity was not observed
