Hello Lalit
Thank you for getting in touch with us. As I see, you have been diagnosed with diabetes this April. Glycomet is highly effective in treating diabetes and is one of the most commonly used drugs in the treatment. It is contraindicated only in cases of chronic kidney disease and in people with high serum creatinine. For people with normal kidney function, it is not contraindicated. Olmesar is a good drug for treatment of hypertension. However, if your BP is still 165/100 and is not responding to Olmesar, you should be started on another anti-hypertensive. Therefore, we would recommend you to get in touch with your Doctor and take the necessary steps. Hope this helps.
