Risk of uncontrolled Diabetes - Dr. Sanjay Gupta
Diabetes is very predominant in India especially Type 2 diabetes and we know that diabetes is not just the management of blood sugar. It is a syndrome, it is multifactorial, it has multiple factors associated with it and that is why it is important to treat other factors other than blood sugar. Blood pressure seems to be very important coexisting disease comes to about 60 to 70% of diabetes people, of Type 2 diabetes people having blood pressure. Blood pressure as you know is hypertension there are many guidelines, International guidelines to talk about the management of blood pressure in diabetes. It is very important to treat blood pressure in diabetes because it has a lot of comorbidities associated with it especially cardiovascular problems. People have heart attack, heart failure and have other complications of other organs also. That means their blood pressure is also an important factor when you treat diabetes. It is equally important to manage the blood sugar and the blood pressure equally well as per the guidelines the best possible way.
