Re: Blood pressure meds for diabetics??
Ace inhibitors are the first line of defense for diabetics with kidney issues. In fact, most docs put them on a small dose even before there are problems. There are some conflicting studies about ARBs so I would talk mainly with the docs about an ace. The thing is that in some cases, especially when creatinine rises significantly, they discontinue the ace because it can cause other problems. I'm not sure what the cut off is though. My cr. was much higher before they took me off the ace.
Definitely talk to the doc about it and don't be afraid to make suggestions. The worst they can do is say no.
Maybe you should post this message on the kidney board too. You will probably get more info.
