Call for tighter blood pressure targets in patients with diabetes


the ARRs for benefits per 10mmHg reduction were of the order of 3 per 1000 patient-years. thats an NNT of about 333 i think. pretty slim chance of benefit, but i guess it beats an NNT of 800 quoted for mildly hypertensive non-diabetic men !!!
