Although cardiomyopathy due to diabetes mellitus (DM) is well known, it has not been adequately investigated in which stage of DM starts affection of the heart. The aims of this study were to investigate any change of left ventircular diastolic functions determined by echocardiography in patients with new diagnosed type II DM, and to determine the relation between diastolic functions and blood glucose control. Twenty-three patients (1O women and 13 men; mean age 49.3±8.8 years) with DM were included to the study. Mean duration of DM was 1.37±0.68 (maximum 3) years. A control group consisted of 24 healthy persons (1O women and 14 men; mean age 45.7±7.6 years). The patients had neither hypertension nor coronary heart disease. Mean values of age, body mass index, heart rate and diastolic arterial pressure were not significantly different in both groups. There was no significant difference in the mean values of maximal velocity (Amax) and velocity time integral (A-VTI) of diastolic atrial filling flow between the two groups. Mean maximal velocity (Emax: 57.2±10 cm/sec and 70.5±ı2, respectively, p<0.0001) and velocity time integral (E-VTI: 86.1±20 cm and 109.4±26 cm, respectively, p<0.01) of early diastolic filling flow of the patient group were less than those of the control group. The ratios of Emax/Amax (0.9±0.1 and 1.22±0.1, respectively, p
