both the angiotensin and aldosterone levels that are initially lowered by ACE inhibition eventually return to the baseline level in the long run.
2005b) demonstrated that angiotensin II caused EPCs senescence through the induction of oxidative stress, therefore intracellular ROS production was measured.
The role of angiotensin receptor blockers in patients with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor-induced angioedema.
Aldosterone is a mineralocorticoid primarily regulated by Angiotensin II and plasma potassium levels.
ACE, angiotensin I and angiotensin II are part of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS), which controls blood pressure by regulating the volume of fluids in the body.
29) The ACE inhibitors reduce RAS activation by blocking the conversion of Angiotensin I to Angiotensin II, leading to decreased activation of both AT 1 and AT2 receptors.

Conclusion: Inhibition of RAS by converting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin II receptor blockers captopril, enalapril, valsartan or telmisartan produce beneficial effects on the markers of metabolic syndrome and can reduce the frequency of metabolic syndrome in type 2 diabetic patients.
