Albumin/creatnine ratio has been increasing. My endo doesn't want to treat due to lisinopril allergy. 45.6 june 2011, 55 nov 2013, 75 feb 2014. Advice?

ARB option: Angiotensin receptor blockers have similar effect like ace inhibitors. If you are taking them you don't need ace inhibitors. Arbs usually end with "sartan" eg losartan, telisartan. However, if by "allergy" you mean that they slow down your kidneys then arbs aren't good for you either. Your lipitor, (atorvastatin) BP ; diabetes control (if have it) are very helpful for proteinuria otherwise. ...Read more
