In brief: Yes, probably
It is very important for a person diagnosed with diabetes and high blood pressure to work closely with their doctors to make sure these conditions are being treated appropriately.
If so, then there is a good chance of a long and healthy life. Patients should strive for: - healthy weight - regular exercise - BP at goal (at least < 140/90) - sugar at goal (a1c < 6.5-7) - no smoking - eye and md exam.
