Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are mostly used to treat high blood pressure and heart disease. One type of ACE inhibitor is also used to treat kidney disease, especially for people with both diabetes and kidney disease.
Some ACE inhibitors can prevent or improve heart failure. They can also help right after a heart attack to stop more damage from happening to your heart and body.
Blood pressure, kidneys, heart – ACE inhibitors do their part!
