Question Diabetes - BP going up again

I have had Type 2 diabetes for about 2 years, and hypertension for about 6. I'm 66. My untreated BP was around 180-200/110-120 - so not good! Back in 2007 I was getting quite a bit of chest pain and was investigated, but with treatment my BP fell to around 115-130/65-80 and I had no problems.

Over the past couple of years it has been rising, with my diastolic consistently above 65, and I was surprised that my GP only made one change to my medication. This last couple of weeks the chest pain on exertion or stress has returned. Yesterday my BP was 145/95 and I asked if I could add propranolol - also for my essential tremor.

Do you think I am unreasonable in wanting my BP to be below 130/80 as I have diabetes and a very strong family history of heart disease?
