Antihypertensive treatments for adults with type 2 diabetes

Clinically, pathophysiologically, and epidemiologically type 2 diabetes (hereafter, “diabetes”) and hypertension are tightly linked.1 About 50-60% of adults with diabetes have hypertension but only half with both conditions have adequate blood pressure control. Those with diabetes and hypertension are particularly susceptible to vascular injury because diabetes is associated with higher nocturnal pressures with greater 24 hour blood pressure load,2 impaired flow mediated autoregulation with associated microvascular injury, and stiffening of large arteries leading to increases in pulse pressure.1 Thus people with diabetes and hypertension are at an exponentially increased risk of death, myocardial infarction, heart failure, stroke, and end stage renal disease.2

Orthostatic Hypotension - American Family Physician

Orthostatic hypotension is a physical finding defined by the American Autonomic Society and the American Academy of Neurology as a systolic blood pressure decrease of at least 20 mm Hg or a diastolic blood pressure decrease of at least 10 mm Hg within three minutes of standing. The condition, which may be symptomatic or asymptomatic, is encountered commonly in family medicine. In healthy persons, muscle contraction increases venous return of blood to the heart through one-way valves that prevent blood from pooling in dependent parts of the body. The autonomic nervous system responds to changes in position by constricting veins and arteries and increasing heart rate and cardiac contractility. When these mechanisms are faulty or if the patient is hypovolemic, orthostatic hypotension may occur. In persons with orthostatic hypotension, gravitational opposition to venous return causes a decrease in blood pressure and threatens cerebral ischemia. Several potential causes of orthostatic hypotension include medications; non-neurogenic causes such as impaired venous return, hypovolemia, and cardiac insufficiency; and neurogenic causes such as multisystem atrophy and diabetic neuropathy. Treatment generally is aimed at the underlying cause, and a variety of pharmacologic or nonpharmacologic treatments may relieve symptoms.

Carotid artery stenting is as effective as carotid endarterectomy, study shows

Carotid artery stenting achieves a similarly low risk of death, stroke, and myocardial infarction (MI) to carotid endarterectomy in older patients with asymptomatic severe carotid stenosis, shows a randomised trial published in the New England Journal of Medicine that also showed similar rates of stroke and survival at five years.1

Taking aspirin before coronary artery surgery does not increase deaths or bleeding, study shows

Taking aspirin before coronary artery surgery is not associated with an increased risk of death, bleeding, or thrombotic complications, a randomised trial1 has shown. The trial showed that there was no need for patients taking aspirin to stop before cardiac surgery.
