Re: Hypertensive and atherosclerotic effects on blood vessels

It goes to show just how versatile the ACE inhibitors are. They are used for treating cardiological problems, hypertension, some kidney diseases, and even these types of conditions.
This publication is for cardiologists, the well referenced articles contributed by the same. They prescribe the ACE inhibitors for heart failure and to heart attack patients. I agree that these drugs are powerful and effective, with fewer side effects than other antihypertensives. I am glad I am on it and often recommend it to others.
Diet and exercise are probably the best ways to avoid/defer these medical conditions. Achieving and maintaining a normal blood pressure (by ANY means) is the most important thing.
