AIMS: Type 1 diabetes is associated with increased cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality, and cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN) is an important CV risk factor. The study aimed to explore associations between CAN and altered cardiac chamber sizes in persons with type 1 diabetes.

METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study of 71 asymptomatic, normoalbuminuric participants with long-term type 1 diabetes (39 with CAN, determined by >1 abnormal autonomic function test) examined with cardiac multi detector computed tomography scans, which allowed measurements of left ventricular mass and all four cardiac chamber volumes. Cardiac chambers were indexed according to body surface area (ml/m2 or g/m2).

RESULTS: Persons with and without CAN had mean ± SD age of 57 ± 7 and 50 ± 8 years (p < 0.001) and diabetes duration of 36 ± 11 and 32 ± 9 years (p < 0.05), respectively. Increasing autonomic dysfunction, evaluated by decrease in heart rate variability during deep breathing (in beats per minute), was associated with larger right (-0.5, 95% CI -1.0 to -0.0, p < 0.05) and trend towards larger left (-0.4, 95% CI -0.8-0.0, p < 0.1) ventricular volumes in multivariable linear regression.

CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that impaired autonomic function may be associated with modest enlargement of ventricular volumes; this might be an early sign of progression towards heart failure.
