Abstract


This study aimed to determine the degree of left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and its determinants in adolescents with type 2 diabetes (T2D). We hypothesized that adolescents with T2D would display impaired LV diastolic function and that these cardiovascular complications would be exacerbated in youth exposed to maternal diabetes in utero.
