In case the patient’s blood pressure is high, the nurses should consider initial therapy for hypertension management which includes: dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers (CCB), angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) (Gupta and Guptha, 2010). However, in case the patient is hypotensive (low blood pressure); the nurses should consider the use of inotropes (i.e. noradrenaline... ?

These effects are due to the damaging effect of hyperglycemia on the blood vessels in these tissues.

Meanwhile, once the vessels are narrowed, there is increased pressure in the vessels, creating room for conditions of high blood pressure or hypertension to take place. Once ACE inhibitors target the angiotensin I which are formed by the enzyme ACE, and the angiotensin II would not be produced entirely, then this risk will be minimized.
