A good blood pressure range for someone who is diabetic.

Q: What range of BP should be maintained by a diabetic patient? I am 62 and have diabetes II since 1999.

A: Your blood pressure should be maintained at less than 140/90.  Some studies suggest that a pressure of less than 130/80 is even better for people with diabetes.  You might want to discuss this further with your doctor.  To learn about the added risk of high blood pressure with diabetes go to this page at the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute site.
