Exacerbation of cardiovascular ageing by diabetes mellitus and its associations with acyl-carnitines

Acyl-carnitines and cardiovascular function. (A) Archived Acyl-carnitine and impaired myocardial relaxation. Blue circles and lines represent unadjusted hazard ratios (HR) for one-unit increase in archived acyl-carnitine and its 95% confidence interval (95%CI) on impaired myocardial relaxation. (B) Change in Acyl-carnitine and impaired myocardial relaxation. Blue circles and lines represent unadjusted odds ratios (OR) for one-unit increase in archived acyl-carnitine and its 95% confidence interval (95%CI) on impaired myocardial relaxation. (C) Archived Acyl-carnitine and impaired left atrial conduit strain. Blue circles and lines represent unadjusted hazard ratios (HR) for one-unit increase in archived acylcarnitine and its 95% confidence interval (95%CI) on impaired myocardial relaxation. (D) Change in Acyl-carnitine and impaired left atrial conduit strain. Blue circles and lines represent unadjusted odds ratios (OR) for one-unit increase in archived acyl-carnitine and its 95% confidence interval (95%CI) on impaired myocardial relaxation.
