Purpose: The aim of the present study was left ventricular mass index (LVMI) in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients may be related increased circulating homocysteine (Hcy) levels.Methods: The study group comprised 130 patients, and all patients were newly diagnosed with diabetes and were not taking any medication. Measures of left ventricular mass (LVM) were assessed using Devereux formula and left ventricular mass index (LVMI) was calculated as LVM...
