Diabetes and hypertension: facing the big challenge ahead
About the event
Diabetes and HTN are ‘bad companions’ the prevalence of both are high with devastating consequences and is a challenge to doctors. So, the question is how do we prevent millions of premature deaths? We have tended to focus on BP management, but it is important to find drugs that can provide not only BP control but is more important to find drugs that can save lives and offer cardiovascular protection.
This lecture focused on guideline recommendations for SPC first-line in diabetic HTN patients, and the rational for an ACEIs diuretic combination for BP efficacy, complete renal protection and mortality reduction.
