Abstract

Background. Pulmonary complications of diabetes mellitus have been poorly characterized. Although some authors have reported normal pulmonary function, others found abnormalities in lung volumes, pulmonary mechanics, and diffusing capacity. Subjects and Methods: We studied pulmonary function in a group of patients with diabetes using a combined cardiopulmonary exercise test. Twenty-seven patients with diabetes aged 48 +/- 13 years participated in the study. Results: Overall, forced vital capacity, forced expiratory volume in I second, and forced expiratory flow, midexpiratory phase, were within the predicted values, but the residual volume/total lung capacity ratio was slightly elevated. Comparison by diabetes type showed nonsignificant differences in forced expiratory volume in 1 second and forced expiratory flow, midexpiratory phase. Residual volume/total lung capacity ratio was significantly elevated in type 1 patients compared with type 2. Carbon monoxide diffusion capacity (DLCO) was normal in both groups. There was no correlation between the results on pulmonary function test and duration of disease, presence of microangiopathy, or glycemic control. The DLCO was significantly lower in patients with microangiopathic changes, but not when DLCO was corrected for alveolar volume. On the cardiopulmonary exercise test, maximal workload, maximum oxygen uptake, and maximal heart rate were less than predicted, whereas anaerobic threshold and ventilatory reserve were normal. No significant differences were noted in diabetes type, and there was no correlation between parameters of cardiopulmonary exercise test and the other variables. Conclusion: Spirometric values are preserved in patients with diabetes mellitus, and there are no defects in diffusing capacity. Cardiovascular factors may account for impaired physical performance. There is no need for routine screening of pulmonary function among diabetic patients.
