Academic Journal
The article examines several studies which addressed antihypertensive treatment and blood pressure in diabetic and non-diabetic patients. Based on international guidelines on hypertension, the recommended blood pressure (BP) is below 140 millimeter of mercury (mmHg) systolic and 90 mmHg diastolic in general hypertensive population. After assessment of the clinical trials, one speculation is that tight BP control is recommended for patients who are at higher risk of developing a cerebrovascular event.
