Modern studies have shown that the prevalence of cardiovascular disease and chronic heart failure (CHF) specifically, in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) is about 50%. Aim. To study gender-specific changes in laboratory indexes and structural myocardial parameters of left ventricle (LV) in CHF on the background of diabetes mellitus (DM) type 2. 111 patients with I-III functional class of disease with normal, overweight and abdominal obesity I-III degree were examined. Methods and results.

It is established that in CHF on the background of DM type 2 and obesity there is a tendency to develop anemia and renal dysfunction in women. Structural changes of the myocardium is more pronounced in men and presents the prevalence ofLV hypertrophy and dilatation of the heart cavities. Conclusion. This demonstrates different ways of negative impact of gender factor on the laboratory indexes and structural myocardial parameters in CHF on the background of DM type 2 and obesity.
