What kind of meds do they give for nephrotic syndrome?

ACE or ARBS. Nephrotic syndrome is when the kidneys spill an excessive amount of protein in the urine. This loss of urinary protein will lead to renal failure. So patients usually have to take an ace inhibitor like Lisinopril or an arb like cozaar (losartan). These medicines work to prevent this protein spill from occurring.
