Resistant Hypertension in Patients With Type-II-Diabetes Mellitus (RESIST)

This study has been completed.

The risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with type-II-diabetes mellitus (type-II-DM)is more than doubled and CVD accounts for 70% of deaths in this group of patients.

Hypertension is a major risk factor for CVD in patients with type-II-DM and a major contributor cardiovascular mortality. Uncontrolled- (UH) and resistant hypertension (RH)are more common in patients with type-II-DM, why further bloodpressure (BP) control is needed.

The prevalence of UH and RH has not been examined in a consecutive Danish outpatient population with type-II-DM.

The purpose of this study is to examine the prevalence of resistant hypertension in patients with type-II-diabetes and to examine the characteristics of patients with resistant hypertension as compared to patients with controlled hypertension with regards to arterial stiffness.
