Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Diabetics are preferably put on ARBs and ACE inhibitors. Putting a patient on both hypoglycemic and hypertension pills is mandatory as any parameter uncontrolled can lead to drastic effects.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
