1 blood pressure medication

For IgA Nephropathy patients with proteinuria > 1g/ day, RAS blockers, i.e. ACEI or ARBs, are recommended to take for long-term. The dosage can be gradually increased until the amount of proteinuria is less than 1g/24h.

Target blood pressure: for patients with proteinuria < 1 g/day, their blood pressure should be controlled below 130/80mmHg. For patients with proteinuria >1g/day, blood pressure should be controlled below 125/75mmHg.
