How often should Diabetics have their blood pressure checked?
People with diabetes should have their blood pressure checked at every visit to a health care provider – both your primary care doctor, and all specialists. High blood pressure can cause stroke, kidney failure and heart disease – it is important to keep it under control, a good target is less than 140/80 mmHg. Exercise plays a major role in controlling blood pressure. Discuss your exercise plans and goals with your doctors – together you can make a plan that will be the best for your health.
