Diabetes mellitus and hypertension are common diseases that coexist at a greater frequency than chance alone would predict.
Hypertension in the diabetic individual markedly increases the risk and accelerates the course of cardiac disease, peripheral vascular disease, stroke, retinopathy, and nephropathy.
Our understanding of the factors that markedly increase the frequency of hypertension in the diabetic individual remains incomplete.
Diabetic nephropathy is an important factor involved in the development of hypertension in diabetics, particularly type I patients.
