    Abstract

    Coexisting diabetes and hypertension can set off a vicious cycle of increasing renal damage and rising blood pressure. Early treatment - before blood pressure reaches levels traditionally considered hypertensive - can preserve renal function. Late treatment typically requires multiple drugs and may not effectively control blood pressure and arrest progression of renal disease.
