Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) acutely declines with the introduction of renin-angiotensin system inhibition. This response is functional, not anatomical, and varies with volume status. The reduction in GFR with renin-angiotensin system inhibition may serve as a biomeasure of future therapeutic benefit.
