  • inhibitors
  • This characteristic of fosinopril makes the drug a safer choice than other ACE inhibitors for heart failure patients with impaired kidney function resulting from poor perfusion as fosinopril can still be eliminated by the liver, preventing accumulation of the drug in the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • Furthermore, ACE inhibitors were less effective in reducing blood pressure and had a 51% higher risk of stroke in black hypertensives when used as initial therapy compared to a calcium channel blocker. (wikipedia.org)
  • hypotension
  • Markers of electrolyte and water imbalance in the body such as hypotension, low distal tubule sodium concentration, decreased blood volume and high sympathetic tone trigger the release of the enzyme renin from the cells of juxtaglomerular apparatus in the kidney. (wikipedia.org)
  • lowers
  • The overall class of antihypertensive agents lowers blood pressure, although the mechanisms of action vary greatly. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Inhibiting the production of AII lowers peripheral vascular resistance, decreases afterload, and decreases blood pressure, thus helping to alleviate the negative effects of AII on cardiac performance. (wikipedia.org)
  • In heart failure patients, fosinopril increases exercise tolerance and lowers the frequency of events associated with worsening heart failure, such as dyspnea, the need for supplemental diuretics, fatigue, and hospitalizations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Chronic
  • Polycythemia can be a result of a lifelong illness, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), or due to problems with the blood itself. (chemocare.com)
  • Diabetes
  • You can try to control your heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes to decrease your chances of developing chest pain. (chemocare.com)
  • This is because they have been associated with increased risk of new-onset diabetes and as such are recommended for use in patients over 65 where the risk of new-onset diabetes is outweighed by the benefits of controlling systolic blood pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • decrease
  • Evidence suggests that reduction of the blood pressure by 5 mmHg can decrease the risk of stroke by 34%, of ischaemic heart disease by 21%, and reduce the likelihood of dementia, heart failure, and mortality from cardiovascular disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • pump
  • As a result of cardiotoxicity, your heart may not be able to pump blood through out your body as well. (chemocare.com)
  • This means that the heart is unable to pump blood through the body very well. (chemocare.com)
  • In congestive heart failure, the ability of the heart to pump enough blood to satisfy the physiological needs of the body is reduced. (wikipedia.org)
  • oxygen
  • Walking, swimming, or light aerobic activity may help you to lose weight, and promote the flow of oxygen in your lungs and blood. (chemocare.com)
  • Coronary artery spasm - the coronary artery will "spasm" which creates a temporary narrowing of blood flow, and a temporary lack of oxygen to the heart muscle. (chemocare.com)
  • Hgb carries oxygen in the blood. (chemocare.com)
  • reduce
  • Since a decline in IGF-1 is associated with an increased risk of ischemic heart disease, fosinopril may reduce ischemic risk. (wikipedia.org)
  • risk
  • In a study examining the effects of fosinopril on insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and IGF binding protein serum concentrations in high cardiovascular risk patients, a six-month treatment of fosinopril was associated with an elevation in IGF-1. (wikipedia.org)
