altace what will it do for my kidney's. They say they are damaged from my sugar being so high for so long and not taking care of it. I just found out before Christmas this past year. I am doing much better now with my counts. They are staying between 106 and 130 for the high end. Much better than in the 500 range where I was. I have lost 30 pounds and still working on losing more. I am looking for some knowledge from all of you on ways to help get healthier and on the altace I am taking for my kidney's. Thanks everyone who takes the time. Answered by Lelia Righi 2 years ago.
Altace is a member of the class of drugs called an ace-inhibitor. Ace stands for angio-tension converting enzyme. This enzyme is naturally produced in the kidneys and is used to increase blood flow to the kidneys when needed. The enzyme causes blood vessels to constrict (shrink) all over the body making less area for the blood thus increasing blood pressure. The kidney (and eyes) have the smallest vessels in the body and people with high blood pressure can break these tiny vessels or clog them (they can't keep up with the flow). The kidneys get tricked into thinking a person has low blood flow and release the enzyme (ace) to increase pressure, when in reality high blood pressure is causing the problem to begin with. In your case Altace will keep your pressure lower to prevent further damage to your kidneys and prevent your damaged kidneys to not be tricked into thinking they need an increase in pressure. Keep your blood sugar in check as much as you can. Test frequently and learn what foods have the most effect on your sugar. Also loosing the weight is a great idea. In addition look into either the diet that the A.D.A. has or Med-2000 . These diets will keep you trim but more important help keep your blood-sugar in range. Good luck!

Please see the web pages for more details on Ramipril (generic name) Altace (brand name). The drug comes under ACE inhibitors. ACE stands for angiotensin converting enzyme. Levels of angiotensin, a chemical which narrows blood vessels, are restricted by the drug, causing the arteries to dilate and leading to a fall in blood pressure. Types of ACE inhibitor include enalaparil, captopril and lisinopril. Side-effects include a fall in blood pressure, especially when combined with diuretics for the first time. Consult your doctor.

Can cozaar be a substitute for altace?
Asked by Loriann Part 2 years ago.
Cozaar and Altace are similar medicines in that they both work through the kidneys to lower blood pressure and help reduce the workload of the heart. Ask your doctor before switching medicines, as there can be a specific reason to be on one over the other. Answered by Jospeh Kirkpatric 2 years ago.
My grandmother is using this, actually it's generic name is Losartan and it lowers blood pressure by keeping the blood vessels from narrowing. But if you are using Altace as your medication right now, make sure that you will not just switch without the permission of your doctor. they might both help in lowering blood pressure but you're still not sure of the possible benefits and risk of taking cozaar as an alternative. You can ask your doctor first so that you will be aware if it is safe for you to take this.Here is lot of information about it that might help you to decide if you really want to switch. only do a gogole with pharmacyescrow.org/s3115-s-ALTACE Answered by Karole Skov 2 years ago.

Is Diovan (valsartan) a substitute for Altace?
Asked by Gita Marx 2 years ago.
Diovan (valsartan) belongs to a family of medications known as angiotensin II receptor blockers. These medicines are used to lower mild to moderate hypertension (high blood pressure). They work by relaxing blood vessels. Angiotensin II is a chemical that the body releases to cause the constriction of blood vessels. Valsartan blocks the action of angiotensin II, resulting in the relaxation of the blood vessels. This relaxation causes the blood pressure to drop. The full effects of valsartan are usually seen within about four weeks. Valsartan may be used alone or in combination with a diuretic (water pill). Altace is indicated in patients 55 years or older at high risk of developing a major cardiovascular event because of a history of coronary artery disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, or diabetes that is accompanied by at least one other cardiovascular risk factor (hypertension, elevated total cholesterol levels, low HDL levels, cigarette smoking, or documented microalbuminuria), to reduce the risk of myocardial infarction, stroke, or death from cardiovascular causes. Altace can be used in addition to other needed treatment (such as antihypertensive, antiplatelet or lipid-lowering therapy). Diovan (valsartan) is not a substitute for Altace.You should contact your doctor for more information. Answered by Junie Stach 2 years ago.
Side effects of Altace?
Asked by Kristofer Caracso 2 years ago.
Ramipril is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. It is also used to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke in patients at risk for these problems and to improve survival in patients with heart failure after a heart attack. Ramipril is in a class of medications called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It works by decreasing certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly and the heart can pump blood more efficiently. Ramipril may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away: headache dizziness cough upset stomach vomiting excessive tiredness weakness Some side effects can be serious. The following symptoms are uncommon, but if you experience any of them, call your doctor immediately: swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs hoarseness difficulty breathing or swallowing yellowing of the skin or eyes fever, sore throat, chills, and other signs of infection lightheadedness fainting Please see the web pages for more details on Ramipril (generic name) Altace (brand name).

I developed a dry cough as a side effect from Altace, nothing too serious, just annoying but it lasted for several months until I finally went to a doctor and they put two and two together and realized it was a side effect of the Altace. Hopefully it works well for you! Answered by Jacqueline Winterfeldt 2 years ago.
I have taking Altace 2.5 mg for over three years, and no side effect has happened. My friend, however, got severe cough, and his doctor had to change it with other medication. It seldom make a dramatic drop to blood pressure. If it does, I would feel dizzy, tinnitus, nausea, and even I might pass out. Answered by Duncan Kaawa 2 years ago.

Is 20mgs of lisinopril equal to 10 mgs of altace ?
I am trying to determine if the doctor increased my dosage when she changed my medicine from altace to lisinopril or if 10mgs of altac is equivalent to 20 mgs of lisinopril
Asked by Kathie Barns 2 years ago.
Based on the HOPE trial, 10mg Lisinopril is approximately equivalent to 2.5 mg of altace (ramipril). 10mg of altace would approximately be 40mg lisinopril. So it seems the doctor lowered it. But note 20 mg Lisinopril is the normal effective dose given to people with high blood pressure. Any higher dose of lisinopril does not have much of an additional effect.

Ramipril Lisinopril Conversion Answered by Irving Hazan 2 years ago.
The 10 commandments as they were in Moses time no longer apply in this dispensation. Christ changed the laws to be more spiritual than carnal. When you transgress 1 law, you transgress the law and will receive the same judgement as if you transgressed a different law. Transgressing is transgressing. That the easiest way to put it. James 2:11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. 1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
