Abstract Share this page

Type 2 diabetes is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular (CV) events, especially in the elderly. The electrocardiography (ECG) remains the most widely used non-invasive method for cardiovascular (CV) risk assessment. Hence, the study aimed to evaluate the prevalence, variants and determinants of ECG abnormalities among older patients with type 2 diabetes. A total of 200 participants with type 2 diabetes (46% men) attending diabetes clinics at two referral centres were included. Resting ECG was recorded and the various abnormalities identified; left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), prolonged QTc, ischaemc heart disease (IHD), conduction defects, ectopic beats among other aberrations. The abnormalities were related to history, clinical, and biochemical parameters.The mean age and median duration of diabetes were 66.8 years and 20 years respectively. The variants and prevalence of ECG abnormalities detected were as follows: prolonged QTc (25.5%), Twave changes (22%), LVH (18.5%), sinus tachycardia (15.5%), IHD (9%), conduction defects (7%) and ectopic beats (4%).ECG abnormalities among older diabetics were high and included prolonged QTc, LVH, IHD and conduction defects, and were more related to blood pressure levels, waist circumference, LDL-cholesterol, than glycaemic control
