Patients with diabetes experience peripheral paresthesias and cardiac
autonomic neuropathy that may affect the way they perceive the symptoms of
unstable angina (UA). The purpose of this study was to examine differences
in symptoms for patients with and without diabetes during an episode of
UA. Structured instruments were used to identify the type, location, and
quality of the symptoms of UA. A convenience sample of 50 women and 50
men, hospitalized with UA, were recruited. Patients with diabetes were
more likely to have a history of hypercholesterolemia (83% vs. 60%;
p=0.02), prior history of heart disease (85% vs. 65%; p=0.03), and prior
angiogram (85% vs. 67%; p=0.04) compared to those patients without
diabetes. Patients with diabetes reported nausea less often (20% vs. 40%,
p=0.04) and hyperventilation more often (27.5% vs. 11.7%, p=0.04).
Patients with diabetes also experienced less squeezing (25% vs. 48%;
p=0.02) and less aching (25% vs. 45%; p=0.04) type pain. Although cardiac
autonomic neuropathy may be a reason why some patients with diabetes
report different cardiac symptoms compared to patients without diabetes,
our findings suggest that patients with diabetes experience cardiac
symptoms similar to patients without diabetes.
