Type 2 diabetes and hypertension are among the leading components of the global burden of disease. The two conditions frequently coexist, and individuals with comorbid type 2 diabetes and hypertension have a dramatically increased risk (two- to fourfold) for cardiovascular disease, end-stage kidney disease, and death (compared with normotensive and nondiabetic adults). Improving awareness, management, and prevention of these diseases is a major goal of the global health system.
