OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this study were to examine the trends in the prevalence of type 2 diabetic patients with comorbid hypertension and blood pressure (BP) control rates in the United States and determine factors associated with these outcomes. METHODS: We used data from National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) III (1988-1994) and NHANES 1999-2004, a cross-sectional sample of the noninstitutionalized US populations. Type 2 diabetic patients were identified as patients at least 30 years of age with physician-diagnosed diabetes who were taking insulin or oral antidiabetic drugs to manage the condition. A diagnosis of hypertension was based on physician diagnosis, treatment with antihypertensive medications, or BP at least 140/90 mmHg. BP control was defined as diabetic patients who maintained BP
