Effectiveness of dietary protein augmentation associated with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition in the management of the nephrotic syndrome.


To determine whether the increase in proteinuria resulting from high dietary protein intake could be prevented by angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition (ACEI), we performed paired studies on 8 nephrotic patients with normal GFR. They were fed sequential diets with a protein content of 0.8 (LPD) and 1.6 g/kg BW (HPD) each for 8 weeks. Patients on HPD… (More)
