Blood pressure lowering is an established strategy for preventing microvascular and macrovascular complications of diabetes, but its role in the prevention of diabetes itself is unclear. Additionally, controversy exists as to whether the threshold for blood pressure-lowering treatment should differ between people with and without type 2 diabetes. In this project, we integrated randomised clinical trials and genetic data to provide robust answers to these questions.
