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)

4. Aldosterone receptor antagonists:
Eplerenone (Inspra)
Spirinolactone (Aldactone)
Finerenone (Kerendia)

5. GLP1 agonists:
Dulaglutide (Trulicity)
Exenatide extended release (Bydureon BCISE)
Exenatide (Byetta)
Semaglutide (Ozempic)
Liraglutide (Victoza, Saxenda)
Lixisenatide (Adlyxin)
Semaglutide (Rybelsus)
