Your blood pressure goal should either be below 140/80 or 140/90 depending on whether you have kidney disease and how severe it is. Discuss your personal goal with your doctor.
Many people with diabetes have high blood pressure. However, keeping your blood pressure at your goal will help prevent damage to your kidneys, heart, brain, blood vessels, and other parts of your body. Meal planning, medicines, and physical activity can help you reach your blood pressure goal.
