Abstract: Modest increases in urinary protein excretion, ehich are now easy to detect, indicate early stages of generalized vascular damage and not just increased glomerular capillary permeability. Particularly in patients with diabetes, ACE inhibitors stabilize or reduce microalbuminuria. Together with close control of blood glucose, reduction in blood pressure diminighes risk of progression to complications of diabetes, especially nephropathy. Similar principles should apply to microalbuminuria found in hypertensive or even in otherwise healthy people.
