When Should We Start Using Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitors/Angiotensin Receptor Blockers in Diabetic Kidney Disease?

D.D. Ivanov


International guidelines do not recommend angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors/angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) usage in the first stage of diabetic kidney disease. It shows the view, based on a small statistical sample, that olmesartan (or possibly other ACE inhibitors/ARBs) should be used to prevent the transition of the first stage of diabetic kidney disease to the second one in type 2 diabetes mellitus.
