|Title:||Galectin-3 for prediction of cardiac function compared to NT-proBNP in individuals with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes mellitus|
|Online publication date:||11-Aug-2022|
|Abstract:||Use of galectin-3 for assessing cardiac function in prediabetes and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) needs to be established. Within the Gutenberg Health Study cohort (N = 15,010, 35–74 years) patient characteristics were investigated regarding galectin-3 levels. Prognostic value of galectin-3 compared to NT-proBNP concerning cardiac function and mortality was assessed in individuals with euglycaemia, prediabetes and T2DM in 5 years follow-up. Higher galectin-3 levels related to older age, female sex and higher prevalence for prediabetes, T2DM, cardiovascular risk factors and comorbidities. Galectin-3 cross-sectionally was related to impaired systolic (β − 0.36, 95% CI − 0.63/− 0.09; P = 0.008) and diastolic function (β 0.014, 95% CI 0.001/0.03; P = 0.031) in T2DM and reduced systolic function in prediabetes (β − 0.34, 95% CI − 0.53/− 0.15; P = 0.00045). Galectin-3 prospectively related to systolic (β − 0.656, 95% CI − 1.07/− 0.24; P = 0.0021) and diastolic dysfunction (β 0.0179, 95% CI 0.0001/0.036; P = 0.049), cardiovascular (hazard ratio per standard deviation of galectin-3 (HRperSD) 1.60, 95% CI 1.39–1.85; P < 0.0001) and all-cause mortality (HRperSD 1.36, 95% CI 1.25–1.47; P < 0.0001) in T2DM. No relationship between galectin-3 and cardiac function was found in euglycaemia, whereas NT-proBNP consistently related to reduced cardiac function. Prospective value of NT-proBNP on cardiovascular and all-cause mortality was higher. NT-proBNP was superior to galectin-3 to assess reduced systolic and diastolic function.|
