The article discusses a study which compared the left ventricle (LV) morphology, diastolic and systolic function in adolescents with type 1 diabetes and in healthy peers. The study also aimed to identify possible correlations between selected parameters of LV morphology and function and degree of metabolic control in long-, medium and short term as well as the duration of diabetes and its treatment models. Findings suggest that the LV diastolic dysfunction in girls depends on the degree of insulin resistance.
