Hello and welcome to MedHelp's forums. Thanks for the question. In essence, yes. High blood pressure increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by about 50 percent. Controlling blood pressure and diabetes prevention are essential. Here's an article about this topic. https://www.nhs.uk/news/diabetes/high-blood-pressure-does-it-lead-to-diabetes/
Speak to your doctor about these concerns. All the best to you.
High blood pressure, high blood sugar can both be part of the same metabolic syndrome. Both should be carefully addressed and well managed.
Exercise, weight loss, low carb diet, as well as medications, if required, are the best way to manage. Best wishes to you.
