Background and aim: In this study, we aimed to evaluate myocardial functions in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). We also aimed to investigate the relationship between B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels and myocardial performance index (Tei index) in these patients.
