What Results of Angiotensin Converting Enzyme mean?

Interpretations

  • An increased ACE level in a person with clinical findings suggestive of sarcoidosis means that it is likely that a person has an active case of sarcoidosis, if other diseases have been ruled out. The finding of a high ACE level helps to confirm the diagnosis 
  • A normal ACE level cannot be sued to rule out sarcoidosis since sarcoidosis may be present without an elevated ACE level 
  • It may also be used to monitor the course of treatment in sarcoidosis. An initial high level which decreases over time usually indicates spontaneous or therapy induced remission and a favorable prognosis. On the other hand, a rising ACE level may indicate either the disease is not responding or it is progressing
