Abstract

Proteinuria may be of glomerular or tubular origin but may be also caused by endothelial damage. Hypertension is a known cause of proteinuria, especially microalbuminuria. This is associated with a greater cardiovascular mortality. This review is dedicated to the possibilities of reducing proteinuria in hypertensive patients. It concisely states the results of large up to date clinical trials. A proteinuric hypertensive patient should have the best possible blood pressure control. The drugs of choice are ACE-inhibitors and AT1-blockers, especially in combination.
