A 55-year-old man with a history of membranous glomerulonephritis comes to the physician because of a "puffy face." Physical examination shows orbital edema. Laboratory studies show hypoalbuminemia and hypercholesteremia, and a 24-hour urine sample contains 4.2 grams of protein. The urine also shows low levels of sodium and high levels of potassium. Treatment with which of the following is most likely to cause the development of acute renal failure in this patient?
A) Enalapril
B) Warfarin
C) Indomethacin
D) Low-protein diet
E) Simvastatin
F) Sodium restriction
