Good Reason to Treat High Blood Pressure Aggressively

separator A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has shown that controlling high blood pressure aggressively in people with type 2 diabetes can

  • Reduce stroke by 44 percent
  • Decrease cases of kidney and eye disease
  • Improve life expectancy

People who have diabetes are at increased risk of stroke and heart disease. Remember—high blood pressure usually has no symptoms, so it’s important to be checked for this condition regularly.
