AbstractOne thousand five hundred patients with type two diabetes mellitus were studied, aiming to find the
prevalence of hypertension and it's state of control in those people.
They were 777 females and 723 males. Their age ranged from (30 – 80) years (mean 52.5). The
number of hypertensive patients among them was 816; the prevalence rate is 54.4%.
It was discovered that there was a high rate of control failure (76%) which was either due to patient
noncompliance (69%), insufficient drug doses prescribed ( 46.8% ) , or to a unsuitable
combination of drug regimes (33.4%) .
