Discrepancy Between Tonometric Ambulatory and Cuff-Based Office Blood Pressure Measurements in Patients With Type 1 Diabetes
The Journal of Clinical Hypertension, 08/16/2012
Theilade S et al. – In patients with type 1 diabetes, tonometric ABP measurements are feasible. Ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) and office blood pressure (OBP) disagree in diagnosing hypertension in 31% to 37% of patients. Furthermore, 55% to 66% of patients do not reach target BP of <130/80 mm Hg despite regular follow–up.
