Hypertension may can cause proteinuria. It indicate glomerular damage. You have to control blood pressure first then it may have to come down slowly. Yes ace inhibitors are useful to decrease the proteinuria. Please consult your physician he will examine and advice appropriate antihypertensive drug.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
