Call for tighter blood pressure targets in patients with diabetes

Comment

I think academics need to make up their mind . The practicality of getting systolic BP under 130mmHg with or without side effects need to be weighted properly. I suppose one can also look into sub-profiling these patients with systolic BP under 130, 140 and 150mmHg and label with an absolute risk of stroke or MI.
