Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, diabetes exacerbate one another

July 18, 2017

PHILADELPHIA — There is a strong link between heart failure with preserved ejection fraction and diabetes, and the conditions often make each other worse, a speaker said at the Heart in Diabetes Medical Conference.

Ejection fraction is an important measurement in the diagnosis and surveillance of heart failure (HF), however, it is possible for patients with normal ejection fraction to have HF, and this form of the disease, HF with preserved ejection fraction, or HFpEF, is becoming increasingly prevalent, Eldrin F. Lewis, MD, MPH, FAHA, cardiologist from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, said during a presentation.
