Feedback:
Captopril (Capoten) is the first-line agent for treating hypertension in diabetic patients, particularly those with type 1 diabetes. Captopril can be used for hypertension in patients with asthma, glaucoma, and angina pectoris but is not the first-line agent, as noted in diabetes mellitus.
