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

High cholesterol diet is not linked to increased heart risk, study shows

Eating a diet with relatively high cholesterol content and eating eggs regularly are not associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease events including myocardial infarction, shows a 20 year follow-up study of men in Finland that included some at increased genetic risk.1

Pioglitazone may reduce cardiovascular events in high risk patients with prediabetes

Pioglitazone, an insulin sensitising agent, may reduce the risk of myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke after a recent transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or stroke in patients without diabetes who are insulin resistant, a randomised trial has shown.1

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
