• thiazide
  • Fosinopril may also be used in addition to digoxin or a thiazide diuretic or both to treat congestive heart failure . (medbroadcast.com)
  • For diabetes insipidus, the effect of thiazide diuretics is presumably mediated by a hypovolemia-induced increase in proximal sodium and water reabsorption, thereby diminishing water delivery to the ADH-sensitive sites in the collecting tubules and increasing the urine osmolality. (wikipedia.org)
  • As of 2009, the best available evidence favors the thiazide diuretics as the first-line treatment of choice for high blood pressure when drugs are necessary. (wikipedia.org)
  • congestive heart f
  • 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)
  • 3 High plasma ANP and brain natriuretic peptide levels have been measured under several clinical conditions in which sodium and water retention occur, such as congestive heart failure or chronic renal failure. (ahajournals.org)
  • perindopril
  • After administration of perindopril, ACE is inhibited in a dose and blood concentration-related fashion, with the maximal inhibition of 80 to 90% attained by 8 mg persisting for 10 to 12 hours. (okxo.info)
  • 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)
  • Chronic

  • 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)
  • high blood chole
  • If you have a family history of heart disease, stroke, high blood cholesterol, or high blood pressure, in a first or second-degree relative, you may be at risk for certain problems. (chemocare.com)
