lisinopril to protect the kidneys?
I just returned from my first appt w/ my new Dr.  She says that I should be on lisinopril "to protect my kidneys". I have had diabetes for 35 years and never had a test come back indicating that I am "spilling protiens". My BP is 104/70
A1c is about 7.3.Very good health, no heart problems etc. Is this just a standard/ routine prescription for diabetics now...like aspirin?

Yes, this is pretty standard now.  


You should ask for Doctor signs that the Lisinopril might be having an adverse reaction though.

I was on Lisinopril for kidneys too but it made me cough too much so my doctor switched me to Hyzaar.
