Hi! I hope someone can give me any explanations about this. This is something that has been on my mind a lot largely. My older brother is a diabetic, and he also has high blood pressure. I know this because he often measures his blood pressure at home. He is not on any kind of hypertension medication, but I am wondering if he should be. What is the usual approach to treating the patient who has diabetes and hypertension? Can the hypertension be cause by the diabetes? Thank you for reading.
