If you have diabetes, you already know about the importance of controlling your blood sugar levels.  But you may not be aware of another problem that can go together with diabetes - high blood pressure or hypertension. The coexistence of hypertension and diabetes is not a coincidence.


According to the statistics from National Library of Medicine (NIH)【1】, it is estimated that diabetes affects 34.2 million people in US, which accounts for 10.5% of US population, and 73.6% of individuals with diabetes aged 18 years or more have hypertension. High blood pressure is twice as likely to strike a person with diabetes than a person without diabetes. The incidence of Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has risen steeply in the last few decades. In fact, a person with diabetes and high blood pressure is four times as likely to develop heart disease, stroke and other problems than someone who does not have either of the conditions. 

High blood glucose associated with diabetes can damage blood vessels and the nerves that control the heart and blood vessels. Diabetes and hypertension will not go away without treatment. Lifestyle and dietary changes, exercises regularly, maintain a good weight and take medication based on your doctor’s advice can reduce complications from diabetes as well as high blood pressure. 

Another key to keeping both diabetes and hypertension under control is self-monitoring both conditions at home and regularly seeing your healthcare provider. You may remember to self-monitor blood sugar everyday but completely ignore the importance of self-monitoring blood pressure, and controlling blood pressure is equally or even more important for reducing the risk of stroke, heart attacks and kidney failure. There are hundreds of thousands blood pressure monitors on the website, it is hard to choose an appropriate one, right?
