Role of Azelnidipine on management of BP in hypertensive Diabetics: Review
Hypertensive patients with type 2 diabetes carry a high cardiovascular risk. Most patients with hypertension and diabetes face higher mortality due to Heart disease and stroke. Hypertension also markedly increases the macrovascular complications like nephropathy and retinopathy in diabetic patients.
