Hello
TG TOR 10 is atorvastatin which is anti cholesterol while TELMIKIND is a an hypwrtensive medicine called as telmisartan which belongs to ARB group of antihypertensive drugs.These both the drugs are different so there is nothing to be afraid of duplication.
TELMIKIND has been prescribed to you because it helps in preventing the progression to frank diabetic Nephropathy and END STAGE RENAL DISEASE,as you are suffering from macroalbuminaria.
You must consult a nephrologist and should be managed jointly and all efforts should be made to delay the progression to renal failure.
Thanks
