Cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN) as complications of diabetes mellitusis known by increasing the tendency of causing arrhythmia, ischemia and sudden cardiac death. Early detection of CAN helps prevent its associated risks. JTc interval is an important clinical marker for cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and arrhythmia leading to sudden cardiac death. The target of this study is to examine the JT interval variability and the heart rate variability to distinguish any changes in the ventricles re-polarization for diabetic patients in their early and definite stages of CAN. And also investigate the JTc intervals between diabetic patients in their early and definite stages of the disease.
