Women with high blood pressure have three times more risk of developing diabetes, according to a study

MADRID, (EUROPA PRESS) women with high levels of pressure’n sanguínea are three times más likely to develop diabetes than those women with lower levels, s&number;n a study of the Harvard Medical School in Boston (united States), which is published in the journal ‘European Heart Journal’. This effect demonstrated’ to be independent to aspects such as the ’index of body mass, and other disorders that predispose to cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Sec&number;n the authors of the work, the specialist dutyían to be alert to the relationships between pressure’n sanguínea and type 2 diabetes to improve the control of patients with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. The researchers followed for ten a&bath;os más than 38,000 women who worked in the health care system. When the study started’ in 1993, none of these women padec’an, diabetes or cardiovascular disease. The participants were divided in four groups s&number;n your levels of pressure’n sanguínea (’optimal, normal, high, hipertensi’n). In 2004, at the conclusion of the study, 1.4; 2,9; 5.7 and 9.4 per cent of these women in their respective groups habían developed type 2 diabetes. Scientists’graphics included then in the análysis aspects such as age, ethnicity, smoking history, alcohol consumption, ’table of contents body mass, exercise or a family history of diabetes to eliminate possible biases in its conclusions. The results showed that women with hipertensi’n tenían a risk three times greater to develop diabetes in comparaci’n with those with levels of pressure’n sanguínea ’ptimos. S&number;n explains David Conen, director of the study, the study shows that the association’re between the president’n sanguínea and diabetes cannot be explained by addressing s’it to the weight. The results alsoén show that women who went through an increase in the pressure’n sanguínea during the study alsoén tenían increased risk of developing diabetes. Women whose tension’ve ascended’ but remained normal tenían increase in the risk of 26 percent in comparaci’n with those whose pressure’n sanguínea remained stable or lowered’. Además, women who happened to have hipertensi’ve had a 64 percent más risk of developing the disease. The authors suggest as a possible mechanism in the relationship’re among the president’n sanguínea and diabetes a disfunci’n of the processes bioquímicos normal of the layer células that lines the inside of the vessels sanguíneos. S&number;n Conen, this alteration’ve can’to originate both the hipertensi’n like diabetes. The researcher concludes that the results envían important message for specialists and future guías médicas since the factors of cardiovascular risk should not be taken into account separately: beá necessary to take into account the combination’n of all the risk factors to decide on the best treatment.
