The syntropy of hypertension and diabetes has found increasing interest because of its impact on prognosis and the problems of therapy. This book provides a comprehensive review of the subject. The first section considers the specific risks of the hypertensive diabetic regarding complications of hypertension and antihypertensive therapy and of metabolism. The second section is dedicated to pathologic anatomy. Diabetic cardiomyopathy is highlighted as well as findings in renal pathology. In the next section pathophysiological aspects are dealt with. Here, the role of insulin in the cause of adiposity, hypertension and diabetes together with the roles played by eicosanoids and natriuretic peptides are emphasized. The last section treats all essential aspects of therapy, making the book of interest not only to researchers in the field, but also to physicians and practitioners interested in diabetes.
