The authors concisely review the main clinical issues arising in the management of the hypertensive patient with type 2 diabetes, in whom chronic kidney disease is prevalent and heralds increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Special attention is paid to the clinical meaning, relevance and limits of albumin excretion and glomerular filtration rate, the two widely used markers of reduced kidney function during the course of chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension. The main therapeutic strategies involving blood pressure and glycemic control, treatment of dyslipidemia and improvement of lifestyle are discussed from the viewpoint of a general practitioner dealing with the clinical complexity of these patients.

Abstract

The authors concisely review the main clinical issues arising in the management of the hypertensive patient with type 2 diabetes, in whom chronic kidney disease is prevalent and heralds increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Special attention is paid to the clinical meaning, relevance and limits of albumin excretion and glomerular filtration rate, the two widely used markers of reduced kidney function during the course of chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension. The main therapeutic strategies involving blood pressure and glycemic control, treatment of dyslipidemia and improvement of lifestyle are discussed from the viewpoint of a general practitioner dealing with the clinical complexity of these patients.
