Diabetes - Blood Pressure

One of the five goals for achieving the best diabetes care is maintaining appropriate blood pressure.

Patients with diabetes often have high blood pressure, meaning blood is moving through the body with too much force. If left untreated, high blood pressure can cause stroke, heart disease, kidney failure and blindness. By working to lower your blood pressure, you can reduce your risk for these health problems.

High quality care for diabetes includes tests to see if your blood pressure is less than 140/90 mmHg. This goal is part of the D5, five treatment goals created to make it easier for patients with diabetes and their health care team to focus on treatments that have the greatest health impact.

Talk with your doctor about how you're doing on your D5. Learn more at www.theD5.org
