Abstract
Background: Hypertension, characterized by elevated systemic arterial blood pressure, can cause various complications. Type 2 diabetes mellitus (hereinafter referred to as diabetes) is the most common complication in patients with hypertension, and hypertension complicated with diabetes can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. It is pointed out that the prevalence of hypertension complicated with diabetes in China is 24.3%~ 38.4%. Objective: To analyze the blood glucose level and its related influencing factors in patients with hypertension complicated with diabetes mellitus. Methods: A retrospective survey using self-designed questionnaires was carried out in patients diagnosed with hypertension plus diabetes mellitus hospitalized in the Department of Cardiology of a Grade III Level A hospital in Guangzhou from October 2015 to March 2016. The binary Logistic regression was used to analyze the influencing factors for blood glucose level. Results: A total of 437 patients with hypertension plus diabetes mellitus were included in the study. The standard-reaching rate of blood glucose was 24.3% which was of significant difference between different diabetic durations (P=0.007). The binary Logistic regression analysis showed that the duration of diabetes (OR: 1.094; 95% CI: 1.036, 1.155) was the independent risk factor for the standard-reaching rate of blood glucose. Conclusions: The standard-reaching rate of blood glucose in patients with hypertension complicated with diabetes mellitus was relatively low and the duration of diabetes was an important risk factor for standard-reaching rate of blood glucose.
