[IP] Ace Inhibitors

Alecia Wesner asks about Ace inhibitors, suddenly on her horizon. Ace
inhibitors stop the conversion of angiotensin I to Angiotensin II Two
hormones produced by the kidney to raise blood pressure. They also raise the
filtration pressure in the kidney and this causes damage to the kidney. When
given, filtration pressure goes down, blood pressure goes down and the
kidney is protected from hyperfiltration and high blood pressure, both of
which cause kidney damage. In addition, slowing the filtration rate by
lowering the blood sugar to more normal levels also protects the kidney
further. The high glucose levels raise the filtration rate and damage the
filtration organelles of the kidney. Pumping keeps the bg down. Ace
inhibitors further protect your kidney. There is some evidence that the
tendency to get kidney damage is genetically determined, Spot
