Lisinipril and PKD
My son (29 years old) was diagnosed with PKD about 9 months ago. His kidney function is fine. His blood pressure is about 130/80. His doctor is recommending Lisinipril to control blood pressure and help with cysts. He is not experiencing any negative affects from PKD at this point.
My husband is 67 and found out 9 months ago that he too has PKD. His kidney function is fine. He takes medicine for high blood pressure. He like my son is not experiencing any negative affects from PKD either.
is there anyone who was told to take Lisinipril for the same reasons?

Hi everyone.. Do any of you have muscle cramping as you approach(ed) Stage 5? I'm probably at around 13-14 GFR now, and am starting to get some recurring cramping - especially feet and ankle areas. It's not chronic, but starting to be more than just a fluke cramp here or there I think. Just wondering if this is something that is common.Thanks,Steve
