Abstract

To halt progression of renal disease, the combination of several interventional strategies is recommended. The most important components comprise lowering of systolic blood pressure to approximately 120 mm Hg; providing pharmacologic blockade of the renin-angiotensin system by angiotensinconverting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers; and reducing proteinuria to rates of less than 1 g/d.
