From North Carolina, USA:

Our 14 year old son has had type 1 diabetes since age 1, his latest hemoglobin A1c was 8%, and his blood pressure has been 140/80 for the past two visits so his doctor put him on an ACE inhibitor. Is this common for teens with diabetes?


Not especially. While this may be the correct management, I think it would be worth asking if a renal work-up is required.
