Systolic BP variability associated with increased risk of death, CV events in patients with type 2 diabetes, meta-analysis finds

While current guidelines use only the absolute value of blood pressure (BP) to stratify a patient's cardiovascular (CV) risk, the results suggest that variability in systolic BP may also contribute to risk stratification in this high-risk population, the authors concluded.
