Abstract: Current recommendations, largely based on studies in type 2 diabetes, suggest lower target blood pressures (BPs) for individuals with diabetes than for the general population. However, the effect of lower BP on renal outcomes in type 1 diabetes is uncertain. In a population-based cohort of type 1 diabetes adults (mean age: 33.1 years) based in Wisconsin, of which the distribution of baseline BP was in the low-normal range, we examined the relationship between decreasing categories of systolic and diastolic BP and the 16-year incidence of proteinuria (n=232 of 604) and estimated glomerular filtration rate of
