Scatterplot between BMI and LVEF versus BMI and E/é in T2DM patients and controls. Results of linear regression between left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and body mass index (BMI) in patients and controls (a). In b, LV diastolic function expressed as the ratio between the peak early mitral flow velocity (E) and the mean of peak early diastolic myocardial velocity (é) measured at the base of the septum and the lateral wall is plotted vs BMI
