Normal individuals may have a small volume of the angiotensin converting enzyme circulating in their blood.
Angiotensin converting enzyme is normally measured in nanomoles per milliliter per minute (nmol/mL/min) with normal range considered less than than 40 nmol/mL/min. Elevated levels may be associated with a number of conditions with the most notable being sarcoidosis 4.
Other conditions that have reported to be associated with higher levels of angiotensin converting enzyme include:
