The level of blood pressure achieved during treatment influences greatly the outcome of diabetic patients. In patients with diabetic nephropathy, the rate of progression of renal disease is in a continuous relationship with blood pressure until a level of 130 mm Hg systolic and 70 mm Hg diastolic is reached [253, 254]. Aggressive treatment of hypertension protects patients with type 2 diabetes against cardiovascular events. As it has been mentioned in Section D2, the primary goal of antihypertensive treatment in diabetics should be to lower blood pressure below 130/80 mm Hg whenever possible, the best blood pressure being the lowest one that remains tolerated.
