High & Low Blood Pressure board

I am a 70 yr old male active and generally fit. For over 10 years I have been taking 10mg lisinopril together with hdcl and keeping my Blood pressure just fine. Recently I have had a high creatinine level. I have been having some kidney discomfort and am scheduled for an appointment with a nephrologist. I am concerned.
Lisinopril put me into acute renal failure. but thank God it was reversible. I am sure that your function will return once you stop this medicine. I developed bad kidney pain and very very dark decreased urine. My creatitine is now 0.9-1.1
Get off the Lisinopril. I now every doctor will tell you it protects the kidneys, but this med will give you kidney failure also.
