In brief: It help

Compared with placebo ace inhibitors (captopril, lisinopril, enalapril, perindopril, and ramipril) are more effective at reducing progression to macroalbuminuria, and at increasing regression to normoalbuminuria in normotensive people with type 1 diabetes and microalbuminuria.

ACE inhibitors are recommended for most people with diabetes, high blood pressure, and kidney disease. Recent studies suggest that ACE inhibitors, which include captopril and enalapril, slow kidney disease in addition to lowering blood pressure. In fact, these drugs are helpful even in people who do not have high blood pressure.
