ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the interrelation between hypertension (HTN) and diabetes mellitus (DM). It is noted that a more severe cardiomyopathy is resulted by the coexistence of diabetes and HTN. It is stated that HTN is strongly and directly related to stroke in all age groups and the risk of stroke in patients with HTN is more than doubled with the presence of DM.
