So here's what I know - Nephrotic syndrome is characterized by the TRIAD: hyperproteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, and hyperlipidemia. It leaves the patient with edema(usally periorbital....maybe ascites), decreased cardiac output secondary to hypovolemia, and hypotension. Someone please help explain why I would give an ACE-Inhibitor to a patient with HYPOVOLEMIA AND HYPOTENSION. Exact dose in my notes is 12.5 mg p.o. bid. Thanks!
