High BP Problem May Put You At Diabetes Risk – A Study Report

BPBoston: A new US study has discovered that women with hypertension are three times more prone to have diabetes as compared to women with low blood pressure.

Scientists at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston has stated that the outcome was quite apart from body mass index and other conditions already known to predispose people to cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Dr. David Conen, study lead author track over 38,000 female health masters for 10 years starting in 1993. At the beginning of the study, all the women were without diabetes and any cardiovascular problem.

The study, which is published in the European Heart Journal has discovered that after adjusting for different elements including ethnicity, age, alcohol consumption, smoking habits, workout routine, body mass index (BMI), family history of diabetes etc, women with hypertension had a three times possibility of having diabetes as compared to those (women) with optimal blood pressure level.

In a declaration, Mr. Conen said, “Finding an independent association between blood pressure and new-onset diabetes is important, because it suggests that women with increasing blood pressure levels should have their blood glucose levels monitored.”

“Individuals at high risk for cardiovascular disease may benefit from early intervention,” added Mr. Conen.
