OBJECTIVE ACE inhibitors are known to be effective in preventing the progression of diabetic nephropathy. Activation of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is reported to contribute to intrarenal hemodynamic abnormality in diabetic patients. We examined whether RAS blockade by captopril induces intrarenal hemodynamic changes in normotensive patients with type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS The patients ranged in age from 40 to 65 years (20 men and 20 women). A total of 15 age- and sex… CONTINUE READING
