What is High Blood Pressure?
Hypertension, the clinical name for high blood pressure, is known as "the silent killer" because of its relatively little symptoms and potential for dangerous outcomes like heart attacks and strokes. Blood pressure is the force of the blood pushing against the blood vessel walls. When one's blood pressure is elevated, it means that the pressure in your arteries is greater than it should be.

High Blood Pressure & Diabetes: A Deadly Combination

The American Diabetes Association reported that between the years of 2000 and 2012, 71 percent of those with diabetes, at least one in three patients, had a blood pressure of 140/90 or were taking blood pressure medications to stabilize their pressures. "Normal" blood pressure ranges are recommended to be under 120/80.

With a prevalence that high of this silent killer, it correctly seems that hypertension and diabetes go hand-in-hand. Indeed, many diabetics struggle with controlling their blood pressure. These co-existing conditions, if left untreated or uncontrolled, tend to make each other worse. Diabetes decreases blood vessels' ability to stretch, further complicating the blood pressure situation. Diabetes also increases the amount of fluid in the body, which can lead to edema and high blood pressure.
