Heart failure is a well-recognized clinical problem in patients with diabetes. Several mechanisms contribute to the development of heart failure (Fig. 1). The extent to which heart failure results from coexistent coronary artery disease (CAD) and systemic hypertension, versus primary cardiac dysfunction related to diabetes, remains hotly debated. There is little evidence that diabetes alone causes an overt dilated cardiomyopathy. There is also some degree of skepticism that patients with diabetes alone develop heart failure. Nonetheless, patients with diabetes appear to be predisposed to developing heart failure with the superimposition of other cardiac insults, most commonly hypertension and CAD. This predisposition may be due to abnormalities in left ventricular diastolic function and systolic reserve. The presence of renal insufficiency and obesity may further predispose diabetic patients to heart failure. In this chapter we examine the epidemiologic evidence implicating diabetes as a risk factor for heart failure, the abnormalities in left ventricular function observed in patients with diabetes, and the cellular and molecular abnormalities that may be of importance in the development of heart failure.
