Abstract: Diabetes and hypertension frequently coexist and constitute the most notorious combination for the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy and retinopathy. Large clinical trials have clearly demonstrated that tight control of glycemia and/or blood pressure significantly reduces the incidence and progression of diabetic retinopathy (DR) and nephropathy. However, the mechanism by which hypertension interacts with diabetes to induce and/or exacerbate nephropathy and retinopathy is very unclear. Substantial evidence implicates the involvement of chronic inflammation and oxidative stress in the pathogenesis of DR and nephropathy. In addition, hypertension causes oxidative stress and inflammation in the kidney and retina. In the present review, we summarized data obtained from our research along with those from other groups to better understand the role of hypertension in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy and retinopathy. It is suggested that oxidative stress and inflammation may be common denominators of kidney and retinal damage in the concomitant presence of diabetes and hypertension. © 2011 The Japanese Society of Hypertension All rights reserved.
