HYPERTENSION

Diabetes patients frequently have hypertension, with the frequency varying depending on the age, gender, family history, genetics, and any other associated comorbidities. Few of the risk factors for diabetes and hypertension are common, such as sedentary lifestyle, obesity, high calorie consumption, oxidative stress etc. Tissues and organs, particularly those essential to sustaining healthy blood pressure, can sustain extensive damage as a result of high blood glucose levels. Damage to the kidneys, for instance, might raise blood pressure. Additionally, atherosclerotic diseases, heart failure, and microvascular consequences are all strongly  correlated with hypertension. In addition to being the primary cause of morbidity and death, it is the major contributor to the direct and indirect expenses of diabetes. The majority of people with diabetes and hypertension need to be treated to keep their systolic and diastolic blood pressures below 140 and 90 mmHg, respectively.
