BP pills before sleep lower diabetes risk too

Thu, Sep 24, 2015, 12:06 PM
London, Sep 24: Taking blood pressure pills at bedtime rather than in the morning not only reduces BP while asleep but also lowers the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, promising research has revealed.

The team of Spanish researchers found that there was a 57 percent decrease in the risk of developing new-onset of Type 2 diabetes in the bedtime-treated group.

“In hypertensive patients without diabetes, ingestion of the entire daily dose of one or more blood pressure-lowering medications at bedtime results in significantly improved sleeping blood pressure control and prevention of new-onset diabetes,” said Ramon Hermida from University of Vigo, Spain.

The authors conclude that before bed regimen of taking anti-hypertensive medications is as safe as taking them in the morning.

The research was published in Diabetologia - the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes.
