Diabetes blood pressure control warning
Half of people with diabetes are failing to keep control of their blood pressure, risking "damaging" complications, figures suggest.
The analysis of NHS data in England by Diabetes UK showed the number of people not hitting their target has been stuck at about 50% in recent years.
High blood pressure increases the risk of conditions such as heart disease, kidney failure and stroke.
The charity said people needed more support to control their condition.
People with diabetes are normally told to keep their blood pressure below 130/80, slightly lower than the target for the rest of the population.
