Increasing SBP variability is associated with an increased risk of developing incident diabetic foot ulcers.

Excessive SBP variability may offer a potential new target for mitigating end-organ damage associated with microvascular and macrovascular disease, such as diabetic foot ulcers. Targeting SBP variability in addition to the absolute value, may help reduce the high risk of vascular complications faced by patients with diabetes. The goal of this study by HIP Investigator, Dr. Meghan Brennan et al. is to determine whether the risk of incident diabetic foot ulceration increases as SBP variability increases.
