ABSTRACT
The article offers information on benefits of tight blood pressure (BP) control in preventing diabetes-related complications if differences in BP control are not sustained. 1148 patients with type 2 diabetes, who had hypertension, were studied. After the study, it was concluded that in patients with type 2 diabetes, the benefits of tight BP control in preventing diabetes-related complications did not continue over 8 years after the tight-control intervention was stopped.
