Patients who take their blood pressure medications at bedtime may wake up with a lower risk of diabetes, new evidence suggests.
Two new studies from Spain found that patients with hypertension who take their medications at night can lower their blood pressure while sleeping and significantly reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes.
"In hypertensive patients without diabetes, intake of the full daily dose of one or more medications to lower blood pressure at bedtime, as compared to the ingestion of all these medications upon awakening, significantly improves pressure control arterial and prevents the onset of diabetes. " wrote the lead author of the study, Ramon C. Hermida, PhD, cardiologist and epidemiologist at the University of Vigo, and colleagues
