Thanks for your query.
24 hour urine protein excretion
If you have Diabetes your target BP is 130/80.
Telma acts in the same fashion as losar but you can take it once a day as it is long acting.
It is one of the preferred class of drugs for someone with HTN and DM.
Hope this answers all your queries.
Good luck.
