Hypertension is common in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus. Although the exact prevalence of hypertension in pediatric patients with diabetes mellitus is unknown, many studies show rates ranging from 6% to 16%. Several studies looked at the variables that impact blood pressure levels in type 1 diabetes. However, articles in pediatric age group are limited. Upon reviewing the recently published articles, the factors which found to have a significant relationship with blood pressure readings in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus are as follows: patient age, gender, body composition, total fat percentage, body mass index, diabetes duration, glycated hemoglobin levels, and diabetic nephropathy.
