Abstract

In type 2 diabetes, similar metabolic and perfusion patterns can be detected in the non-ischaemic regions of CAD patients with normal cardiac function and in the dysfunctional non-ischaemic myocardium of HF patients. This suggests that insulin resistance, rather than diagnosis of ischaemia or left ventricular dysfunction, affects the metabolism and perfusion features of patients with type 2 diabetes.
