Thanks for posting your query.

If Hypertension and Diabetes is not adequately controlled with lifestyle modifications and dietary control, then treatment from a specialist doctor means a super specialist opinion is required.

I would advise you to consult an Endocrinologist for Diabetes under these circumstances, who will properly evaluate your case and will guide you regarding the investigations necessary and adequate treatment.

For Hypertension you can take a second opinion from experienced Physician (MD) or you can consult a Cardiologist also.

Meanwhile, you continue taking the treatment advised by your previous doctor and fix an appointment with an Endocrinologist and physician/Cardiologist as soon as possible.

I hope this answers your query effectively. In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
