Percentage of Adults with Diagnosed Diabetes with Blood Pressure (BP) <140/90mmHg, by Age Group, United States, 1988–1994 to 2003–2006

Between 1988–1994 and 2003–2006, the percentage of adults aged 20 years or older with diagnosed diabetes and with BP <140/90mmHg decreased from 92.2% to 83.9% for those aged 20–44 years. For those aged 45–64 years, the percentage increased from 64.8% in 1988–1994 to 73.7% in 1999–2002 and stayed at 74.9% in 2003–2006. These opposite trends narrowed the gap in the percentage with BP <140/90mmHg between these two age groups. Those aged 65 years or older had the lowest percentage with BP <140/90mmHg and showed little change throughout the study period. In 2003–2006, 55.8% of those aged 65 years or older had BP <140/90mmHg.
