Problems with your kidney can cause BP problems, but BP problems can also cause problems with your kidney. The blood pressure is not a little problem. You absolutely need to get it taken care of. Your doctor needs to help you figure out why it is not working, and change your dose or prescription, and maybe send you to a kidney specialist, too. You must get professional medical help with this problem, because it is probably more complex than it seems. Probably best to make an appointment, then you have a doctor who is focused on you and your health. There are 24 hour BP tests that can be done, and 24 hour blood sugar tests, too. I found that over the more than four decades of my diabetes, symptoms tended to change. You may be entering a new "stage," and may have to change that regimen in some way also. Good luck and I hope you find a doctor who will treat you in the way you need and deserve.
