The European Heart Journal just released a study of 38,172 women without diabetes or cardiovascular disease by Harvard researchers to determine if over the course of 10 years whether a link exists between blood pressure and blood pressure progression and type 2 diabetes development. During the 10 years of the study, 1,672 women developed diabetes.
Further analysis found that baseline blood pressure and blood pressure progression appeared to be strong and independent predictors of incident type 2 diabetes among initially healthy women.
