Brief Summary:
Proteinuria is an expression of diabetic nephropaty in type 1 and type 2 patients. Hypertenshion treatment and decreasing urine protein excretion, slow down renal deterioration. Treating diabetic ,hypertensive patients with Angiotensin Converting Enzyme inhibitors (ACEi), Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs)is common practice. The aim of our work is to examine 1.The prevalence of ACE and ARB treatment in diabetic patients with or without hypertension.2. Adverse drug reactions of ACEi and ARBs alone or in combination.
