Prevalence of diabetes and heart failure are increasing exponentially worldwide. Diabetes is well-known to increase the risk of heart failure independent of other traditional risk factors and ischemia. Current evidence indicates the presence of several biochemical and molecular changes associated with diabetes that lead to diastolic dysfunction or American Heart Association stage B heart failure. Some, if not all, changes may also predate the development of frank diabetes. In this review, the authors present some of the epidemiologic evidence and a brief description of major mechanistic pathways that favor the development of heart failure in prediabetic and diabetic states.
