You are diabetic and hypertensive duration your FBS is a bit high try to keep it about 100mg and blood pressure 130/80 mm of hg are you having angina or suspected to have coronary heart disease where betablocker are useful otherwise a combination of Olmesartan and amlodipine may be OK if a thizide diuretic is used some times it may make sugar level control a bit difficult.Disscuss with treating physician.
