The prevalence of type 2 diabetes continues to increase with age and changes in unhealthy lifestyles. Indonesia itself is ranked seventh with the number of diabetes mellitus sufferers reaching 8.5 million people. Diabetics often experience metabolic syndrome involving hypertension, dyslipidemia, obesity, endothelial dysfunction, and prothrombotic factors, all of which can trigger and worsen cardiovascular complications. This study aims to analyze the correlation between blood sugar levels and blood pressure in people with type II diabetes mellitus using the Literature Review method. This approach utilizes the results of previous research as a basis for concluding the findings of the current research. As a result of the screening, 9 relevant journals were identified that could be used as references. Research findings show a significant correlation between blood sugar levels and blood pressure in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Individuals who suffer from diabetes have a higher risk of experiencing high blood pressure or hypertension. Therefore, it is important for hypertension sufferers to maintain health, especially controlling blood pressure, because blood pressure has a significant impact on blood glucose levels. By maintaining blood pressure at a normal value, we can prevent disease complications caused by high blood pressure.
