CIRCADIAN VARIATION IN THE ONSET OF ACUTE PULMONARY EDEMA IN DIABETIC AND NONDIABETIC PATIENTS

Raja Zafar Ahmed, Khalid Mahmood Qureshi, Misbahul Islam Khan

Abstract


This study was designed to see whether there is a circadian variation in the frequency of acute pulmonary edema
in diabetic and non-diabetic patients with ischemic heart disease. Total 150 patients (80 diabetics, 70 non-diabetic)
of both sexes age range between 34-72 years with the diagnosis of acute pulmonary edema were included in this study.
Out of 80 diabetics, 28 had associated hypertension, white 16 patients from non-diabetic group were hypertensive. It
was found that there was significant circadian variation in the onset of acute pulmonary> edema in non-diabetic
patients but diabetic patients did not exhibit a circadian variation in the onset of acute pulmonary edema
