Clinical management of hypertension and type 2 diabetes: Revisiting two harmful companions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Hypertension and diabetes mellitus frequently occur together, leading to increased complications and mortality in patients with both these conditions. Blood pressure (BP) goals for patients with diabetes have consistently been more aggressive than those for patients without diabetes. Although the benefits of lowering BP in hypertensive patients are well documented, data to support these more aggressive goals are lacking. In fact, lowering BP might not always be better. On the basis of available evidence from placebo-controlled trials, randomized trials, and achieved BP analyses, the target BP levels recommended in current guidelines (
