In an obese patient with diabetes mellitus, hypertension, retinopathy, and moderate claudication, what is the best treatment for high blood pressure?
Select Your Answer:
Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors have been shown to be effective at delaying renal deterioration in patients with diabetes mellitus.
If ACE inhibitors are not tolerated, angiotensin receptor blockers may be another option.
All other drugs are suitable options as some patients may require multiple drugs to control blood pressure.
Diuretics are often the second-line drugs.
