Author: Taj Eldeen, Amer
Abstract: This is a prospective cross-sectional comparative control study done in the period between August 2002 to January 2003 in Jabier Abu Alaiz Diabetic Centre, to assess the risk factor of hypertension on type 2 diabetic patients and the efficacy of antihypertensive agents on control of BP and metabolic paremeters. Ninety-two patients with type 2 diabetes were studied, 58.2% of them were hypertensive diabetic. The results of this study revealed that, in hypertensive diabetic patients there was an increase in the incidence of diabetic complications especially angina, heart failure, and renal impairment. In this study 87% of hypertensive diabetics were treated with monotherapy, calcium channel blockers, B-blockers and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors were the most common group of drugs used. Only (13.2%) of hypertensive diabetic had achieved optimal SBP, and 48.2% had achieved optimal DBP. The study showed that our diabetic patients had poor glycaemic control as the mean Hb A1c was 10.4%, also there was a high incidence of hypercholesterolemia (31.6%) and hypertriglyceridemia (50%) in particular among hypertensive diabetic patients.
