New-onset diabetes risk rises with BP

October 8, 2015

Elevated BP may be a risk factor for new-onset type 2 diabetes, and the association appears strongest in those who are younger and have a lower BMI, according to an analysis of 4.1 million adults in the United Kingdom.

“A detailed understanding of BP as a potential risk factor for diabetes will help us better understand and communicate risks with patients and can lead to more targeted prevention and management,” Connor A. Emdin, HBSc, of the George Institute for Global Health, University of Oxford, England, and colleagues wrote.
