Abstract :

Objectives: To assess the cardiac autonomic function status in type II Diabetes Mellitus patients by Heart Rate Variability (HRV). This study is also to know the importance of 5 minutes HRV for the detection of autonomic dysfunction in type II DM. Methods: 50 diabetics and 50 non– diabetics of age group 40–60 years were selected as test and control groups respectively. Computerized ECG system with the PhysioPac 4–channel software was used for the study. Frequency domain measures such as very low frequency (VLF), low frequency (LF), high frequency (HF) and LF/HF ratio were assessed. Results: Statistical analysis was done by SPSS software with Student’s t–test. Frequency domain parameters such as LF and LF/HF ratio were significantly (< 0.05) reduced in diabetics compared to controls. Conclusion: HRV was significantly decreased in diabetics compared to controls. The benefits of an HRV evaluation in assessing and monitoring the severity of diabetes mellitus should be further studied. The earlier we are diagnosed, the more can be done to improve the outcome and avoid Cardiac Autonomic Neuropathy.
