What Can I Do to Replace Enalipril with IgA Nephropathy

Question: I was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy in 2011 and since then been on Enalapril HBP medicine to help my kidneys function normal. As the years gone, I've noticed my protein levels have gotten higher and my hair has fallen out quite a lot and I also noticed I've been getting headaches a lot. But for the past month or 2 i haven't been taking my meds i have noticed hair is not falling out as much and I haven't had a headache in a month. Any ideas what I can do to replace the meds.

What Can I Do to Replace Enalipril with IgA NephropathyAnswer: IgA Nephropathy can not be cured, so you have to take medicine for years to control the symptoms. As we all know, almost all medicine have side effects if used for long time. Hair loss and headache are both common side effects of Enalapril.

Enalapril is a kind of ACE inhibitors, which can block angiotensin-converting enzyme needed to form a substance that narrows blood vessels. As a result, blood vessels relax and widen, making it easier for blood to flow through the vessels, which reduces blood pressure. They also increase the release of water and sodium to urine so as to reduce blood pressure. If you can not bear the side effects of Enalapril, you can talk with your doctor to change this medicine to another types, such as ARBs. You should not stop the medicine at random, because it may make blood pressure increase again and cause further damage to your kidneys. Here we can give you some suggestion. Hope it can help you.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is almost herbs. Relatively speaking, TCM has few side effects if you can take them under the instruction of doctor. Some of them can expand blood vessels to lower blood pressure. Some can help you protect your kidney function by anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and extracellular matrix degradation. Long term treatment of TCM can make your whole body balanced and harmonious. With an improved kidney function, you can live a normal life.
