Diabetic Hypertension - How Drug Treatment Can Be Of Help?

Diabetic Hypertension - How Drug Treatment Can Be Of Help?

Hypertension is commonly witnessed among patients suffering from type 2 diabetes as compared to those who do not have diabetes. Studies have revealed that arterial hypertension among patients suffering from type 2 diabetes is in the vicinity of 40-50 percent. What’s more, a patient suffering from hypertension and diabetes has an increased risk factor for certain other diseases such as left ventricular hypertrophy, dyslipidemia, elevated fibrinogen and hyperuricemia.

The measurement practice:
It is important to measure blood pressure in a person who is suffering from type 2 diabetes with or without hypertension and renal diseases. Blood pressure measurement should be repeated within a month, if the measurement is 150/190 mm Hg. BP should be measured within a couple, of months if BP is greater than 140/80 mm of Hg.

Lifestyle practices:
If a person is consistently suffering from type 2 diabetes and has a BP range of 140/80, the following life style practices should be maintained always:

  1. A daily exercise schedule: Hypertension coupled with diabetes can be a dangerous combination. To ensure that a person remains healthy it is imperative to maintain a daily exercise schedule for at least half an hour. Exercise consumes extra calories and helps a person maintain a steady blood-sugar level.
  2. Food habits: Food habit is yet another important criterion to maintain good health for a person suffering from diabetic hypertension. Avoiding starch, glucose, and food with high carbs should be a mandate. Refraining from processed food with a high density of condensed fat, sugar and oil will go a long way in maintaining good health. Consulting a nutritionist is the best way to go.
  3. Stress is yet another factor that drives diabetic hypertension: A person suffering from regular stress has a greater tendency to fall prey to cardiovascular and renal diseases. The only way to stay away from stress is to ensure that good lifestyle choice are made. A stress -free life can pay rich dividends to a person suffering from diabetic hypertension.

Drug treatment:
A doctor’s first line of treatment hovers around ACE inhibitors. A pregnant woman suffering from diabetic hypertension is typically prescribed a calcium blocker. This is an antihypertensive drug that helps to stabilize the pregnancy and keep complications at bay. For a person who is resisting to ACE Inhibitor, a doctor might subscribe angiotensin 2 receptor. If the BP is not reduced after the first line of treatment, a doctor adds a thiazide-related diuretic along with the ACE inhibitor to expedite the treatment process.

Even after a triple therapy if a person continues to suffer from high blood pressure, a doctor might prescribe an alpha-blocker, potassium blocker or a beta blocker.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For a person with diabetes whether T1 or T2, it essential to follow: 1)Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, pastries, bakery items, foods made out of maida, 2) Avoid aerated sweetened drinks (colas), alcohol, sweet corn syrup containing food products, 3) Refrain from smoking, 4) Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits like papaya, pomegranate, water melon, apple, pear, guava, orange, sweet lime. 5) Avoid red meat. Eat small portions at a time and eat on more number of times in a day. Total quantity of food to be divided in 4 to 5 small meals. Thanks.

Hello along with taking the right medicines for diabetes, your mother will have to avoid taking a lot of sugar. Lesser sugar in tea or lesser sweet consumption to start with. She can also take one tea spoon of powder of roasted methi seeds early in the morning and at night it has helped my patients a lot.

for controlling high blood sugar one has to take prescribed drugs regularly and follow certain life style changes. 1) exercise regularly for at least 1 h a day, 2) avoid sweets, sugar, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, 3) maintain near normal weight for age and height, 4) increase the intake of green vegetables, salads and certain fruits. In addition for high blood pressure restrict salt intake to less than 2g a day. No extra salt while eating. About black spot it is difficult to advise any thing.

Hello, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given, but it is not clear to me whether the patient is a male or female, plus what was the surgery done for? It is better if the details like weight, height, of the patient are given. Secondly details of treatment for diabetes with dosage also needs to be mentioned. Plus HbA1c% and lipid levels. Without all the proper details no comments can be made. Thanks.

You should ask your doctor to add beta blocker drug as your antihypertensive if he consider it as good for you. It will control your heart rate.

I want to get my thyroid test but I also want some regular body test so if I’ll take your for full body checkup 799 test will I also get my thyroid test includes in that Pkg or I have to pay more for my thyroid test that my doctor told me.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
General Physician, Delhi
My advise to you is to just restrict yourself to the test that the doctor is asking. There is no such thing as a "whole body test" The labs all over the country have made this strategy to sell more and more of their tests to the public at large. So they marketed and sold the term - "whole body test" to the people. Essentially, all the people need to understand that a medical problem is not a problem until it is disturbing you symptomatically or the doctors observe something in the physical examination. Unfortunately, we all have become "seekers of sickness" as opposed being "seekers of health" We are always worried, infact, terrorised by hospitals and medical bills and thats why try to adopt an active approach for being diagnosed with something. Well, thats the wrong approach. If you get tested for "extra" tests - the only thing that you are helping is the revenue of the lab - you are not helping yourself!

lybrate-user, Your TSH value has come to normal because of the treatment with thyroxine 25 mcg, tablet being taken. If it is stopped TSH level will again go up and from earlier sub-clinical situation it may go on to become a definite hypothyroidism. Hence, treatment has to be continued. Actually on treatment TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Thanks.
