Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors vs. Angiotensin Receptor Blockers for the Treatment of Hypertension in Adults With Type 2 Diabetes: Why We Favour Angiotensin Receptor Blockers
Publication date: April 2018Source: Canadian Journal of Diabetes, Volume 42, Issue 2Author(s): Thomas A. Mavrakanas, Mark L. LipmanAbstractCardiovascular disease is the principal cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with diabetes mellitus. The incidence or progression of kidney disease is also common in these patients. Several clinical trials have established the efficacy of angiotensin receptor blockers for the prevention of adverse cardiovascular and renal outcomes in this population and are summarized in this review article. Head-to-head comparison of angiotensin receptor blockers with angiotensin-converting enz...

The Divergent Cardiovascular Effects of Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors and Angiotensin II Type 1 Receptor Blockers in Adult Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Publication date: April 2018Source: Canadian Journal of Diabetes, Volume 42, Issue 2Author(s): Martin H. Strauss, Alistair S. HallAbstractThe renin angiotensin aldosterone system (RAAS) plays a central role in the pathophysiology of hypertension and vascular disease. Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi's) suppress angiotensin II (ANG II) concentrations, whereas angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) receptor blockers (ARBs) block the binding of ANG II to AT1 receptors. ACEi's and ARBs are both effective antihypertensive agents and produce similar risk reductions for stroke, a blood pressure-dependent phenomenon. ACEi's als...

Single-Pill Combinations in the Treatment of Hypertension in Adults: Beyond Convenience
Publication date: April 2018Source: Canadian Journal of Diabetes, Volume 42, Issue 2Author(s): Benoit Imbeault, Michel ValléeAbstractAdequate blood pressure control in patients with hypertension remains the pillar of cardiovascular-event prevention. Smoking cessation, reduced dietary salt intake, physical exercise and weight loss contribute to better blood pressure control and reduced cardiovascular morbidity, but alone, they are often insufficient in doing so, and their success is highly dependent on individual patient motivation. Pharmacologic therapy, thus, remains necessary for most patients, and our conception ...

This potentially modifiable cardiovascular risk factor may go undiagnosed and undertreated, particularly in children with type 1 diabetes. Recent updated Canadian clinical practice guidelines recommend blood pressure screening every 2 years in children with type 1 diabetes as well as routine use of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring.

Hypertension in Adults With Type 2 Diabetes: A Review of Blood Pressure Measurement Methods, Targets and Therapy
Publication date: April 2018Source: Canadian Journal of Diabetes, Volume 42, Issue 2Author(s): Lyne Cloutier, Maxime Lamarre-ClicheAbstractHypertension occurs in more than two-thirds of patients with type 2 diabetes. In a retrospective analysis of a Framingham cohort, high blood pressure was associated with a 72% increase in the risk for all-cause death and a 57% increment in the risk for any cardiovascular disease event, making hypertension the strongest driver of cardiovascular outcomes in individuals with diabetes. One of the key aspects of hypertension management is the correct measurement of blood pressure; various ty...

Publication date: April 2018Source: Canadian Journal of Diabetes, Volume 42, Issue 2Author(s): Driton Vela, Ramadan B.

The discovery of hepcidin as the prime controller of iron metabolism has paved the way for understanding the main actors behind this mediation. Recent data suggest that insulin therapy and probably other diabetes drugs can influence hepcidin production, thus influencing the iron load in cells. Correcting iron load through hepcid...

Publication date: April 2018Source: Canadian Journal of Diabetes, Volume 42, Issue 2Author(s): Philip A.

Clinicians often move quickly to screen such people for secondary causes of hypertension; however, such causes are rare, and resistant hypertension usually has other explanations that are significantly more common. By using a structured approach to resistant hypertension, clinicians can assist patients to reach their target blood pressure levels. Step 1 is to determine out-...
