Our aim was to compare the diurnal blood pressure patterns of people with Type 1 diabetes on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD, n=9) or haemodialysis (n=10) to diabetic patients with normo-albuminuria (n=12) or micro-albuminuria (n=15). Blood pressure was measured with an ABPM02 Meditech oscillometric blood pressure monitor. The micro-albuminuric group had significantly higher nocturnal diastolic and mean arterial pressures than the normo-albuminuric group. CAPD and haemodialysis patients had significantly higher day time, nocturnal mean systolic, diastolic and mean arterial blood pressures. Micro-albuminuric and end-stage renal failure patients displayed a loss of the physiological drop of systolic blood pressure, which was only significant in the normo-albuminuric group. Nocturnal drop of blood pressure characterised by diurnal indices were 7.4% in the CAPD, 8.8% in the haemodialysis, 10.0% in the micro-albuminuric and 16.5% in the normo-albuminuric group. These results suggest, that pathological circadian blood pressure variation is common in diabetic patients on dialysis, and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring can be a useful tool both in its the detection and its adequate treatment.
