In brief: See below

In any kidney disease it is important to control blood presssure .
If uncontrolled it will lead to more rapid loss of function no matter what the underlying cause.Use of certain medications like ace inhibitors are preferentially used, ask your doctor. Blood sugar , cholesterol control and exercise all help.
