Two researches performed by the Spanish experts discovered that the intake of medication against hypertension before going to bed, instead of taking them in the morning, could decrease with an important percentage the risk of having diabetes later in life, even for people who have members of their family suffering from this ever-growing health complications among US residents.
Over 1/3 of all Americans suffer from severe hypertension, or have levels that are considerably above higher the average values, but are not that high in order for them to be classified as severe hypertension. Besides diabetes and its side effects, the medical problems can produce heart attacks, cardiac arrests, heart failures and even kidney complications.
Changing the moment of consumption of high blood pressure medications with a zero-cost involvement has been proven to reduce the number of deaths caused by hearth conditions and overall death rates. The results from the random medical tests indicate a percentage of over 55% improvement in the chance of preventing diabetic issues during bedtime in comparison to the awakening cure routine.
The studies presented this week looked at various aspects concerning the same issue: is a lower blood pressure better and more efficient against developing diabetes when the subjects are awake or sleeping? In their first research, the experts wanted to see if the risk of having diabetic complications was detectable due to a higher blood pressure.
The specialists have chosen 1,400 men and 1,300 women with ages between 35 and 60, with none of the subjects having diabetes or even prediabetes and with their blood pressure levels between a normal and relatively high value. During the entire period of six years of this study, almost 200 participants in the research developed a form of type 2 diabetes.
After taking into consideration the subjects’ age, body dimensions, glucose levels, chronic kidney complications and treatment against high blood pressure, the scientists have observed that hypertension during sleeping represented the most important factor that could predict further diabetes problems, while blood pressure during people’s awaken state was seen to present no predictive elements for the study..
The second research, selected 2,000 members, of which 950 men and 1,050 women having a similar age bracket as the previous test, into various groups that ingested all their high pressure drugs before going to sleep or in the morning, right after waking up.
During the five years of this second extensive research, more than 170 members of analysis developed a form of type 2 diabetes. Experts have noticed found that when considering the subjects’ physical parameters, such as their age, body size, glucose levels, severe kidney problems and other specific treatments that some of the individuals were following, that taking their drugs during evening time lead to more than 55% decrease in the risks of having diabetes later in life.
Lowering patients’ asleep hypertension is a newer therapeutic method aimed at normalizing blood pressure levels, and could represent an important treatment when trying to reduce the development of diabetes for people suffering of various heart conditions.
