Hypertension and diabetes are major risk factors for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease. Hypertension remarkably increases the cardiovascular risk in diabetic patients. Combined therapy with daily doses of 23.3 +/- 9.8 g accupro and 1.5 mg indapamide reduced systolic and diastolic AP by 30.2 and 27.3% respectively in group 1 and by 27.6 and 27.1% in group 2. The combination therapy was more effective in reducing BP than either drug alone at any time of the study without affecting glucose homeostasis. Diabetes developed in 25 (4.6%) participants in the Diuretics group, as compared with 29 (4.9%) in the No-diuretics group (HR 0.93; 95% CI 0.55 to 1.58; p=0.800). The early and delayed myocardial uptake of 123I-MIBG was lower (p < 0.01 and p < 0.05, respectively), and the percent washout rate of 123I-MIBG was higher (p < 0.05) in the hypertensive diabetic group.
