What are ACE inhibitor drugs for diabetes management?

Donna Hill Howes, RN
Family Practitioner

Lowering blood pressure by taking an ACE (angiotensin converting enzyme) inhibitor reduces the risk of heart attack, stroke, and death in people with diabetes.

Many ACE inhibitors are available in the US. These include benazepril (Lotensin), captopril (Capoten), enalapril (Vasotec), fosinopril, lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril), moexipril (Univasc), perindopril (Aceon), quinapril (Accupril), ramipril (Altace), and trandolapril (Mavik).
