Re: [IPk] ACE Inhibitors / Receptor Blockers?


I use ace inhibibitors because a small amount of protein was found in my 
kidneys although it is not present now.  Ace inhibitors are excellent for 
dilating the smaller blood vessels which can help to some degree with eye 
problems neuropathy etc etc.  I have no side effects from them at all.  What 
with the pump and ace's and now beta blockers my life has improved 
dramatically over the past few months.
