Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE)

Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE)

ACE Inhibitors can decrease ACE levels. Provide the relevant clinical and medication details.

Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Test is performed to measure the level of angiotensin-converting enzyme in your blood. ACE is the main component of the renin–angiotensin system, which regulates the volume of body fluids and controls blood pressure. Angiotensin Converting Enzyme converts angiotensin I to angiotensin II. Due to the presence of angiotensin II in your blood, the small blood vessels in your body narrow or tighten, leading to increased blood pressure. Angiotensin II also increases the sensation of thirst and encourages the release of hormones involved in fluid retention.
