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.
