From: General Practitioners’ vitamin K antagonist monitoring is associated with better blood pressure control in patients with hypertension – a cross-sectional database study

Subgroup of patients with prescribed diabetes medication (n = 644) VKA group vs. control group  
  Adjusteda mean difference (95 % CI) p-value
Systolic BP (mm Hg) −7.2 (−10.9 − −3.6) <0.001
Diastolic BP (mm Hg) −0.4 (−2.3 − 1.5) 0.68
  Adjusteda Odds Ratio (95 % CI) p-value
Controlled BP (<140/90 mm Hg) 1.7 (1.01 – 2.8) 0.044
