Is digoxin gold standard in treating hf and a-fib? Cardiologist of my mom prefers digoxin over angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors.
No: I think digoxin therapy should only be considered in patients who continue to have signs and symptoms in spite of proven available other therapies, such as b-blockers, acei/arb's and diuretics. The other area where digoxin may be helpful is af rate control although recent negative data in regards to mortality raise some concerns. ...Read more
Patient female 44 years old with angiotensin converting enzyme results show 75 h 9-67 u/l. Autoimmune disease?
What does it mean when bloodwork comes back with low Angiotensin Converting Enzyme - meds are synthroid, hydochlorothiazide, clanazapam & zoloft - balance issues?
Lower ACE levels: unknown age, gender, ethnicity and past medical history asks; What does it mean when bloodwork comes back with low Angiotensin Converting Enzyme - meds are synthroid, hydochlorothiazide, clanazapam & zoloft - balance issues? ANS: means your ACE level is low. Only ur Dr can interpret it in ur situation however probably looking got Sarcoidosis. More common n AfricanAmericans. Low suggests no Sarcoid ...Read more
Names say it all: Angiotensin converting enzyme(ace) inhibitor vs angiotensin receptor blocker(arb). The names really say it all. Angiotensin which raises blood pressure needs to be activated to work. Aces prevent that activition. Arbs directly block the activity of angiotensin. Both have similar effects but there is more evidence for heart protection with aces than arbs but slightly more side effects with aces. ...Read more
Can I taper off an Ace Inhibitor after over four years which is perindopril in my case OR do I have to take it for life. I am scared of angioedema.
Can I have two glasses of orange juice while I am taking 8 mg Perindopril ACE inhibitor and 10 mg of bisoprolol beta blocker daily for hypertension.
Not the best idea: While there are no specific precautions about drinking orange juice with these medications, you may be referring to the fact that sometimes orange juice contains potassium supplementation. You are correct that one should be very cautious with extra potassium while taking an ACE inhibitor. Beyond that, two glasses of orange juice contains 220 calories of simple carbohydrate: not a healthy choice. ...Read more
I have a slightly elevated angiotensin conv. Enzyme the cut off was 53 and i was 64. Does this mean I have sarcoidosis? And is that a fatal illness?
See below: Sarcoidosis can be such a mild disorder that no treatment is needed or can be life-threatening. Most of the time simple treatments - not steroids - will control the disease. Workup for underlying causes/mimics is essential. Ace levels are meaningful only related to clinical symptoms. Rheumatologist should provide clarification. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Major BP problems...: Angiotensin-1-converting enzyme converts angiotensi-1 to angiotensin-2, an extremely potent vasoconstrictor, leading to high bp. It is triggered by renin, produced in the kidneys due to low blood flow. The angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, or acei's are used to block this, but some still gets converted in the tissue, so we use angiotensin receptor blockers, or arb's. ...Read more
67 yrs. angiotensin 1 converting enzyme (ace) serum 126.7 , what should be done? Bad? What does this mean? Life style changes. Medication? Thank you
ACE levels: 51 M Notes: 67 yrs angiotensin 1 converting enzyme (ace) serum 126.7 , what should be done? Bad? What does this mean? Life style changes. Medication? Thank you ANS: not enough information to help at this point. Are you 51 or 67? Need to know why it was measured, what meds, other illnesses, & what is normal in that lab. Get this information & will be happy to do 2nd opinion as I specialize in RAAS ...Read more
Relaxes vasc muscle: Angiotensin i is a hormone that is converted to angiotensin ii with the help of the angiotensin converting enzyme (ace). Angiotensin ii is a very powerful constrictor of vascular muscle and in doing so increases the pressure inside the vessels (the blood pressure). If you inhibit (or neutralize) the ace then you don't produce as much angiotensin ii and the BP does not increase. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
