Differences in cardiac index, heart rate, stroke volume and end-diastolic volume in diabetic and control groups. In T1DM subjects there was a slightly lower stroke volume index and cardiac index as compared with matched controls, but the augmentation of these measures was similar between groups (interaction exercise × group, P > 0.05). As compared with matched controls, the increase in cardiac index was less in T2DM (interaction exercise × group, P = 0.005) due to a lesser increase in heart rate (interaction exercise × group, P = 0.006)
