From: Toll/Interleukin-1 receptor member ST2 exhibits higher soluble levels in type 2 diabetes, especially when accompanied with left ventricular diastolic dysfunction

Figure 1

Mean sST2 value for each study group. Patients with type 2 diabetes and left ventricular diastolic dysfunction have the highest mean sST2 (14.97 ± 5.23 ng/ml) among the 4 study groups, even higher than the correspondent of 11.31 ± 3.05 ng/ml of patients with type 2 diabetes without left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (p = 0.001). Furthermore, both 14.97 ± 5.23 ng/ml & 11.31 ± 3.05 ng/ml are higher than the correspondent of those subjects without diabetes. Mean sST2 at 9.16 ± 4.56 ng/ml of healthy controls does not statistically differ compared to the correspondent of 9.93 ± 3.57 ng/ml of subjects without diabetes with left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (p = 0.514).
