Type 2 diabetes mellitus is usually associated with high blood pressure, which is a risk factor for kidney disease. Aggressive blood pressure reduction is an important strategy to protect the kidney and reduce urinary protein which develops with kidney disease. This study will evaluate the effects of amlodipine/benazepril in reducing blood pressure and urinary protein in hypertensive subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
