Blood pressure management in patients with diabetes
Salanitro AH, Roumie CL. Blood pressure management in patients with diabetes. Clinical diabetes : a publication of the American Diabetes Association. 2010 Jul 1; 28(3):107-114 .
Patients with diabetes who also have hypertension are at increased risk of morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular events. However, blood pressure control is frequently suboptimal in the primary care setting. Large clinical trials support the use of antihypertensive medications in these patients to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and death.
