Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are used to treat high blood pressure, heart disease, and kidney disease
Lowering your blood pressure can help prevent damage to the blood vessels, heart, brain, and kidneys. Studies show that ACE inhibitors lower the chance of these problems.
ACE inhibitors can help people with heart disease. ACE inhibitors may prevent or improve heart failure. Some ACE inhibitors may also help right after a heart attack to prevent further damage.
ACE inhibitors can slow kidney disease from getting worse. People who have both diabetes and kidney disease may benefit the most from an ACE inhibitor.
Less Pressure, More Health!
