#Flash: Accelerated diastolic dysfunction observed in Premen
A Study was conducted to know about the age-specific incidence rates and risk factors for Diastolic dysfunction (DD) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). 61 patients with RA and 107 healthy subjects were included in the Study. Results showed that DD was more common in patients with RA at 47% compared to 26% in the controls. Women with RA in the 30- 49 year age range were over 3.5 times more likely to have DD than those of similar age in the control group. In premenopausal women with RA, DD is much more common and the age of onset is reduced.
