Abstract
Hypertension is an important and modifiable risk factor for the macrovascular and microvascular complications of diabetes. Prior literature outlines the significance of lowering blood pressure and subsequent cardiovascular and microvascular benefits. Blood pressure targets of less than 140/90 mm Hg are recommended in all adults with diabetes, with lower blood pressure targets of less than 130/80 mm Hg beneficial for those with higher cardiovascular disease risk. Treatment to lower blood pressure is primarily based on a foundation of lifestyle modifications, low sodium diet, exercise, and good sleep hygiene coupled with multiple medication classes such as renin angiotensin system inhibitors.
