The author comments on the study about the treatment effects of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors in nondiabetic kidney disease. According to the author, heavy proteinuria is a significant factor in chronic kidney disease progression, but less evidence exists to show that ACE inhibitor-based therapy provides the same benefit to patients with non-proteinuric nephropathies.
