For an individual suffering from diabetes, it is as important to maintain normal blood pressure as it is to maintain blood sugar levels as this goes a long way in helping prevent diabetic complications which might even be fatal.

TWO CHEMICALS INCREASINGLY USED DURING MANUFACTURING TO STRENGTHEN PLASTIC WRAP, SOAP, COSMETICS, AND PROCESSED FOOD CONTAINERS HAVE BEEN LINKED TO A RISE IN RISK OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND DIABETES IN CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS.

People suffering from diabetes are more likely to suffer from high blood pressure which in turn may lead to Coronary artery disease (heart disease), strokes, peripheral vascular disease (narrowing of the arteries in the legs and feet) and maybe even Heart failure.

High blood pressure is known as the “silent killer” because it has no major symptoms and most people are unaware that they suffer from it. In case of hypertension, the blood pumps through your heart and blood vessels with too much force. Over time, consistently high blood pressure tires the heart muscle and can enlarge it.

DEHP, THE ORIGINAL CHEMICAL USED AS A PLASTICIZER, WAS BANNED IN 2004 IN EUROPE AFTER RESEARCHERS ELSEWHERE FOUND A LINK BETWEEN EXPOSURE TO THE PLASTICIZER AND DETRIMENTAL EFFECTS ON HUMAN HEALTH. IN THE UNITED STATES, MANUFACTURERS VOLUNTARILY BEGAN TO REPLACE DEHP WITH DINP AND DIDP OVER THE LAST DECADE.

Blood pressure readings may differ from person to person, but in general, in case of someone having diabetes the blood pressure should be less than 130/80 mmHg. The first number is the “systolic pressure” or the pressure in the arteries when your heart beats and fills the arteries with blood. The second number is the “diastolic pressure” or the pressure in the arteries when your heart rests between beats, filling itself with blood for the next contraction.

There are many minor lifestyle changes that can lower your blood pressure. Most are dietary, but daily exercise is also recommended. Brisk walking, swimming workouts or any other form of cardio vascular exercising is a great aid in reducing high blood pressure. Besides the exercising one must try and make a few dietary changes like:

  1. Extra vegetables and fruit in your meals
  2. Use low-fat dairy products
  3. Grilling and baking should be followed instead of frying
  4. Eat at regular intervals and do not skip meals

Medication might be required to balance the pressure levels which must be administered as suggested by the doctors.
