How Does CKD Cause High Blood Pressure

2013-12-06 16:14

How Does CKD Cause High Blood PressureCKD can cause high blood pressure, and we call this hypertension as renal hypertension. High blood pressure is a common symptom of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Well, how does CKD cause high blood pressure? Today, follow me to find the answer.

Depending on the pathologic causes, renal hypertension is divided into two kinds: renin dependent and capacity of the dependence. For people who are suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease, they are easy to suffer from the following conditions.

1.Renin dependent

Renal parenchymal disease and renal vascular lesions cause kidney ischemia which will increase the secretion of renin. Renin makes the angiogeneses changed into angiotensin 1, and in the function of transferase, angiotensin 1 turns into angiotensin 2. Angiotensin 2 has the function of shrink blood vessels. Then the blood pressure will be higher.

2.Capacity of the dependence

When kidneys get damaged, it’s difficult to discharge the water and sodium in the body. Water and sodium accumulated in the blood will cause the increase of blood flow volume, resulting in high blood pressure.

In addition, because of the damaged kidney, the reduced amount of prostaglandin and plasma kinin can also cause high blood pressure.

CKD can cause high blood pressure, and high blood pressure, in turn, can also aggravate kidney damage. Therefore, people with CKD should pay attention to high blood pressure and take prompt treatment to control it. To keep blood pressure, anti-hypertensive medications, such as ACEI and ARB, and healthy lifestyle are both very important. Please, don’t miss the best time to control your condition.
