The comprehensive Diabetes Center includes a unique Hypertension Clinic that addresses high blood pressure from the perspective of diabetes. An integral part of our diabetes management program, this Hypertension Clinic is directed by DR. GEORGE BAKRIS, a nephrologist (kidney physician) who has expertise in diabetes.
Having diabetes doubles your risk of developing hypertension (high blood pressure) – a condition that can lead to more serious problems like poor blood circulation (a major cause of amputations), blindness, stroke and kidney disease. That’s why it’s so important for people with diabetes to keep their blood pressure under control.
