In brief: Proteinuria and ACE

Ace-inhibtors reduced proteinuria (p) by reducing the vasoconstriction caused by angiotensin ii on the efferent arteriole (ea) of the glomerulus.
Once this pressure is reduced, there is less back pressure in the glomerulus, thereby reducing the amount of p the patient has. Other agents, such as angiotensin receptor blockers can also do the same thing.

In brief: B P control

Angiotensin coverting enzyme (ace ) inhibitors will control the blood pressure , there by preventing excessive filtration of protein mainly Albumin , and better reabsorption at nephran level there by reducing the protein loss , the loss is usually over 300 mg per day
