Are you wondering if lisinopril, amlodipine, or thiazide diuretics are right for you? Look no further! We'll explore the benefits, potential risks, and the reasons these are commonly prescribed for kidney health. Harness the power of knowledge to make informed decisions for your kidney health journey.

Here are some of the blood pressure medications Dr. Rosansky spoke about to help with reducing protein in urine (proteinuria or albuminuria):
1. ACE Inhibitors: ACE inhibitors work by blocking the action of the enzyme responsible for the production of angiotensin II, a hormone that narrows blood vessels and increases blood pressure. Some common ACE inhibitors include:
Benazepril (Lotensin)
Captopril (Capoten)
Enalapril (Vasotec)
Fosinopril (Monopril)
Lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril)
Quinapril (Accupril)
Ramipril (Altace)

2. ARBs: ARBs block the action of angiotensin II by preventing it from binding to its receptor. This helps relax blood vessels and lower blood pressure. Some common ARBs include:
Candesartan (Atacand)
Irbesartan (Avapro)
Losartan (Cozaar)
Olmesartan (Benicar)
Telmisartan (Micardis)
Valsartan (Diovan)

3. SGLT-2 Inhibitors:
Canagliflozin (Invokana)
Dapagliflozin (Farxiga)
Empagliflozin (Jardiance)
Ertugliflozin (Steglatro)
Sotagliflozin (Zynquista)
