Abstract

The presence of cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is associated with chronic micro vascular complications and increased mortality. Objective: To assess the prevalence of CAN in T2DM and to investigate any possible association between CAN and micro vascular complications. Method: In this observational study, patients underwent laboratory investigations, biothesiometry, fundus examination, and CAN assessment by CANS analyser. Results: The prevalence of CAN dysfunction was found to be 80.39% according to our study. CAN was found to be significantly associated with age of patients, diabetic neuropathy and diabetic retinopathy. Conclusion: CANS dysfunction appears much before patients manifest signs and symptoms of this condition and it is correlated with other micro vascular complications.
