Abstract
Abstract. AIMS: Can a cut-off blood pressure level for major complications be identified? METHODS: A 10 years observation study in 385 type 2 diabetic patients. RESULTS: 158 patients were affected with myocardial infarction, stroke, renal failure or death, which occurred in 68, 55, 19 and 109 patients, respectively. No patient with a blood pressure below 140 mmHg and/or a diastolic blood pressure below 75 mmHg developed uraemia during the observation period. No such cut-off level was seen for myocardial infarction, stroke or death. CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that there seems to be a cut-off level for blood pressure for development of renal failure, while no level was found for cardio- or cerebrovascular disorders.
