Dr. Rosansky is not just any nephrologist. He‚Äôs the author of "Learn The Facts About Kidney Disease," and he‚Äôs here to sprinkle some serious wisdom. With decades of experience under his belt, he's the guy to listen to when it comes to kidney health.

Here are some of the 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:
‚Ä¢ Benazepril (Lotensin)
‚Ä¢ Captopril (Capoten)
‚Ä¢ Enalapril (Vasotec)
‚Ä¢ Fosinopril (Monopril)
‚Ä¢ Lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril)
‚Ä¢ Quinapril (Accupril)
‚Ä¢ 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:
‚Ä¢ Candesartan (Atacand)
‚Ä¢ Irbesartan (Avapro)
‚Ä¢ Losartan (Cozaar)
‚Ä¢ Olmesartan (Benicar)
‚Ä¢ Telmisartan (Micardis)
‚Ä¢ Valsartan (Diovan)
3. SGLT-2 Inhibitors:
‚Ä¢ Canagliflozin (Invokana)
‚Ä¢ Dapagliflozin (Farxiga)
‚Ä¢ Empagliflozin (Jardiance)
‚Ä¢ Ertugliflozin (Steglatro)
‚Ä¢ Sotagliflozin (Zynquista)
