Abstract :

BACKGROUND : Meticulous Blood pressure lowering has more positive effect than blood glucose level control over the cardiovascular outcome. Hence early detection of prehypertension and prevention or utmost delay of the development of hypertension is very important. AIM: To determine the prevalence of prehypertension in diabetic patients and determine the associations of significant cardiovascular risk factors in these subjects with "prehypertension and diabetes." METHOD: Cross sectional study of 100 diabetic patients was done RESULT : Out of 100 patients with Type2 DM, 33% had PREHYPERTENSION. All the risk factor (dyslipidaemia, central obesity etc.) and target organ damage (micro albuminuria, early diabetic retinopathy, resting ECG changes) were as prevalent as hypertensive group. CONCLUSION: The prehypertensive group had considerably more target organ damages than normotensives. Prehypertension was found as a common association in diabetes, and should be considered for active management by diet, exercise, and if needed by drugs particularly of ACEI or ARB class to prevent further cardiovascular complications.
