Diastolic Dysfunction in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (Diast Dysfkt)
Examination of the effect of Linagliptin versus placebo on diastolic function in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and diastolic dysfunction as assessed by transthoracic echocardiography.
Furthermore the effect on serum levels of NT-pro BNP as a biomarker of heart failure will be investigated.

Active Comparator: Linagliptin
Linagliptin 5 mg (tablets) once daily for 6 month
Other Name: Trade name Trajenta® by Boehringer Ingelheim (BI) Pharma GmbH & Co KG, Biberach, Germany
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo (tablets) once daily for 6 month
The Patients will receive Linagliptin 5 mg QD or placebo for a period of 6 months.
The echocardiography and 24h RR measurement will be performed at baseline and 6 months after initiation of the therapy.
The blood chemistry (Glucose, HbA1c, BNP) will be evaluated at baseline as well as 3 and 6 months after initiation of the therapy.
