Hypertension is a serious complication that affects more than half of diabetic patients. Both diseases are distinct risk factors for cardiovascular disease and have a near pathophysiological relationship. Cardiovascular risks are four times more common in diabetic patients with hypertension than in non-diabetic patients with regular blood pressure. As a result, it is important for diabetics to detect elevated blood pressure early and treat it in accordance with the blood pressure control target. Looking at the various medical recommendations that have recently been published, however, it is unclear what criteria we can use to manage hypertension. Since each treatment recommendation will differ depending on what evidence data is used and what standard of evidence is applied, interpretation is critical. However, these recommendations cannot take the place of doctors’ professional decisions based on the unique characteristics of particular patients.
