Abstract

OBJECTIVE Blood pressure (BP) control for renal protection is essential for patients with type 2 diabetes. Our objective in this analysis of Veterans Affairs Diabetes Trial (VADT) data was to learn whether on-study systolic BP (SBP), diastolic BP (DBP), and pulse pressure (PP) affected renal outcomes measured as albumin-to-creatinine ratio (ACR) and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR).

RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS The VADT was a prospective, randomized study of 1,791 veterans with type 2 diabetes to determine whether intensive glucose control preventedmajor cardiovascular events. In this post hoc study, time-varying covariate survival analyses and hazard ratios (HR) were used to determine worsening of renal outcomes.

RESULTS Compared with SBP 105-129 mmHg, the risk of ACR worsening increased significantly for SBP 130-139 mmHg (HR 1.88 [95% CI 1.28-2.77]; P = 0.001) and for SBP ≥140 mmHg (2.51 [1.66-3.78]; P <0.0001). Compared with a PP range of 40-49 mmHg, PP

CONCLUSIONS SBP ≥130 mmHg and PP >60 mmHg were associated with worsening ACR. The results suggest that treatment of SBP to
