I am type 1 , for the past 8 years. I was seeing a gp previously and he recommended I take enalapril 5 mg a day to protect my kidneys because I had protein in my urine.
A few weeks ago I met an endocronologist and told him I was taking enalapril. He did not see need that I take enalapril. His basis was that (1) I have only had diabetes for 8 years (2) My kidneys should still be fine because it takes time for the kidneys to get damaged (3) By the time I have kidney complications I will already be having issues with my eye sight. I currently dont have any problems with my eyes.
I am just wondering whether I should continue taking enalapril or I should stop. Is anyone else on the same path am in?????
