Physical exercise can induce micro-albuminuria, a urinary albumin excretion rate of 20-200 micrograms/min, in diabetics without micro-albuminuria at rest (stage II of diabetic nephropathy). The aim of the present study was to evaluate the acute effects of captopril, an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, and nifedipine, a calcium channel blocker, on exercise-induced micro-albuminuria in hypertensive diabetics with stage II nephropathy.
