Hi Mari,

I'm not understanding why your doctor recommended Altace to protect your kidneys, as this drug is only used to treat high blood pressure and congestive heart failure.

NOTE: One of the side effects of Altace is low blood sugar (in patients taking medication for diabetes), causing sweating or shakiness.

As far as natural remedies go (for kidney protection), I would highly recommend juicing fresh fruits and vegetables. Just about every fruit or vegetable can be very beneficial in this regard; but parsley in particular, is known to be excellent for the kidneys. In addition, juicing raw fruits and veggies on a daily basis has been proven by many people to reverse and cure type 2 diabetes. I would strongly recommend doing some research on this if you're interested in getting off the prescription drugs.

Is there any other reason your doctor may have prescribed Altace, since you don't have high blood pressure or heart failure?

I hope this helps!

Hi Mari - from what I understand there is a supposed link between blood pressure and kidney disease [1], which explains why your doctor might have prescribed the Altace. However - you said that you DO NOT have high blood pressure? Perhaps your doc expects this medication to be a viable treatment option regardless of your blood pressure.

Regarding a natural treatment option, what David suggested is very good. There is also a relevant article on native remedies which you might find helpful. It states:

"Natural herbal remedies are often used in combination with synthetic drugs to treat kidney problems. Not only are these herbs gentle to use on the body but they provide the same benefits without harsh side effects.

Herbs such as Agathosma betulina (Buchu) possess diuretic properties and acts as urinary antiseptic while Berberis vulgaris (Barberry) improves immune functioning and is excellent for kidney stones, gallbladder problems and an enlarged spleen. Other herbal ingredients that are extremely beneficial for kidney health include Polygonum multiflorum, Schizandra chinensis and Trigonella foenum-graecum." [2]

At any rate, I hope this helps!
