Diabetes and hypertension: prognostic and therapeutic considerations

Blood Pressure
R E GilbertM E Cooper

Abstract

Hypertension and diabetes are common disorders which frequently co-exist. Both are risk factors for atherosclerotic vascular disease and their combination is associated with an increased incidence of nephropathy, ischaemic heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, and stroke. Several trials such as the HDFP and SHEP studies that included diabetic patients have demonstrated the beneficial effects of antihypertensive therapy in reducing mortality. In diabetes, studies have focussed predominantly on the efficacy of antihypertensive therapy in reducing the progression of diabetic kidney disease. Such therapy has been shown to decrease albuminuria in the setting of "normal" and elevated blood pressure in both type I and type II diabetic patients. This reduction in albuminuria has been observed in microalbuminuric diabetic patients and also in those with overt renal disease. Recent studies in type I diabetic patients with overt nephropathy indicate that these effects on urinary albumin excretion are associated with reduction in the rate of decline in renal function and development of end-stage renal failure. Indeed, several groups have shown that the initiation of antihypertensive therapy improves the prognosis of type I diabetic p...Continue Reading

Antihypertensive Agents: Mechanisms of Action

Antihypertensive drugs are used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) which aims to prevent the complications of high blood pressure, such as stroke and myocardial infarction. Discover the latest research on antihypertensive drugs and their mechanism of action here.

Cardiovascular Disease Pathophysiology

Cardiovascular disease involves several different processes that contribute to the pathological mechanism, including hyperglycemia, inflammation, atherosclerosis, hypertension and more. Vasculature stability plays a critical role in the development of the disease. Discover the latest research on cardiovascular disease pathophysiology here.

Carotid Artery Diseases

Carotid artery disease is a group of pathological conditions of the carotid artery. Discover the latest research on carotid artery disease here.

Atherosclerosis Disease Progression

Atherosclerosis is the buildup of plaque on artery walls, causing stenosis which can eventually lead to clinically apparent cardiovascular disease. Find the latest research on atherosclerosis disease progression here.
