Effects and Side Effects of Lisinopril for FSGS Patients

Effects and Side Effects of Lisinopril for FSGS PatientsLisinopril is one medication that is often used to reduce high blood pressure alone or together. FSGS is one kidney disease accompanied by hypertension, which can induce or worsen proteinuria. What are effects and side effects of lisinopril for FSGS patients?

Effects of lisinopril for patients with FSGS kidney disease?

As the above mentioned, the biggest effect of this medication is to lower high blood pressure, because it belongs to one class of drugs called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. Through tightening blood vessels, lisinopril can allow blood to flow more smoothly and reduce the burden on heart.

Kidney filters, known as glomeruli, consist of capillaries, so high blood pressure can cause more protein to leak from the kidneys to urine, resulting in proteinuria. Once blood pressure within kidneys declines, proteinuria will be eased obviously. From this point, this drug is also effective on reducing protein leakage for FSGS patients.

With the well management of high blood pressure and proteinuria, FSGS patients’ illness condition can also get remission to some extent, but effects of this medication are limited.

Side effects of lisinopril for FSGS patients

Most often, this medication won’t cause severe side effects, and most of these side effects are temporary and mitigatory. The common side effects of lisinopril include:

- Dizziness and headache

- Nausea and vomiting

- Cough

- Low blood pressure

- Chest pain

- Diarrhea

- Fatigue

In summary

Even though lisinopril can help manage FSGS complications especially high blood pressure and proteinuria, only depending on this medication is far from enough to treat FSGS fundamentally. If patients want to get more great improvement, they should seek some more systemic and effective treatments such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Immunotherapy. Try to determine which one is suitable for you with online doctor’s guidance.
