In surprising new research, experts report that the timing of taking your blood pressure medicine could have a big impact on whether or not you develop type 2 diabetes.
Specifically, the Spanish researchers found that taking blood pressure medications at bedtime rather than waiting until morning may cut the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by more than half.
People with high blood pressure tend to suffer from a phenomenon called "non-dipping," in which their blood pressure does not substantially decrease during sleep as it does in healthy people, the researchers said in background information.
In an initial study, the investigators found that "non-dippers" tended to have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, compared with people whose blood pressure decreased normally during sleep.
