BACKGROUND Hypertension is a major risk factor for the long-term complications of diabetes. Mobile, self-measurement of blood pressure is emerging as a method to manage blood pressure in general, but its impact in patients with diabetes is unclear. METHODS We randomized 137 patients with diabetes and hypertension to either mobile telemonitoring (n = 72) or usual care (n = 65). Clinic blood pressure was recorded at baseline and after 6 months. Patients in the intervention arm transmitted… CONTINUE READING
