Diabetes and meds: Adding spironolactone to a regimen that includes maximal ace inhibition improves renoprotection (r) in patients with diabetic nephropathy. Diovan (valsartan) is also a r agent as it lowers both blood pressure and protein in the urine of patients with diabetes. The other drugs have no r protect effect in diabetes, other than lowering blood pressure. Speak to your physician for more information in your case.
