Understanding Hypertension and Diabetes
Blood pressure above 140/90mm.Hg is considered as abnormal. Blood pressure is measured by two measurements, systolic and diastolic which depend on whether the heart muscle is contracting or relaxing between beats. Hypertension can be primary or essential when there is no obvious precipitating factor, or the much less common secondary hypertension where there is much identifiable cause.
In case of Essential hypertension there is no specific cause.
Primary hypertension if left untreated it increases the risk of heart failure, kidney problems, stroke and diabetes.
Causes of secondary hypertension :
Sedentary lifestyle, stress, obesity, smoking, alcoholism are some of the causes of high blood pressure.

Type 1 Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition. It's caused by the body attacking its own cells with antibodies. The Beta cells of the pancreas produce insulin. The beta cells of the pancreas are damaged by the body’s own immune system. This results in inadequate amount of insulin production.
Type 1 diabetes is also called insulin-dependent diabetes.
It often occurs in childhood and also called juvenile-onset diabetes.

Insulin helps to transport glucose from blood stream to liver and cells for metabolism. When pancreas do not produce adequate amount of insulin or if it can't use the insulin it produces, the person may suffer from Diabetes.
