Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are life threatening and carry great socioeconomic costs in industrialized countries. CVDs are associated with several modifiable risk factors such as physical inactivity, smoking, obesity, hypercholesterolemia and hypertension. We evaluated the prevalence, awareness, treatment and control of hypertension in Korean adults with diagnosed diabetes using nationally representative data. Among subjects aged greater than or equal to30 years who participated in the Fourth Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey in 2007 and 2008, a total of 745 subjects (336 men and 409 women) with a previous diagnosis of diabetes mellitus were analyzed. The prevalence of hypertension in adults with diagnosed diabetes was 55.5%. The rates of awareness, treatment and control were 88.0, 94.2, and 30.8%, respectively.  [Actualizado: 28 de mayo 2013].
