It is uncommon that patients with diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia achieve simultaneous control of all three conditions as per Emily B. Schroeder, MD, PhD, from the University of Colorado Denver in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes.

Only 15-30% can do that.

The targeted outcomes were hemoglobin A1c <7%, blood pressure <130/80 mmHg, and LDL cholesterol <100 mg/dL.

With less stringent cutoff values (HbA1c <8%, BP <140/90 mmHg, and LDL-C <13mg/dL), the rates of simultaneous controls were 45-70%.

However, simultaneous control was transient in the majority of patients.
