What medications can be used to reduce blood pressure by working with the kidneys and focusing on the angiotensin inhibitor.
ACE inhibitors. Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors work within the kidneys were ACE is manufactured. ACE causes vasoconstriction, therefore increasing blood pressure. Medications that inhibit the production of ACE allow for blood to flow more freely, across a low gradient, therefore reducing blood pressure in those with hypertension.
What types of cells are destroyed in the disease process known as type 1 diabetes mellitus? What medication is used for these patients?
The beta cells are destroyed in type 1 diabetes. Unlike type 2 diabetes where the beta cells become resistant to insulin. Insulin, which is produced by the pancreas is the medication used to keep type 1 diabetes blood glucose levels from becoming too high. If these levels become too high the patient can go into what is called diabetic ketoacidosis.
What is considered the power house of a cell?
