Glomerulonephritis and High Blood Pressure

2014-03-06 03:34

Glomerulonephritis is a condition in which glomeruli become inflamed. High blood pressure is a typical sign of the condition. What is the cause of high blood pressure and how to control it?

Causes of high blood pressure in glomerulonephritis

Glomeruli are the basic functional units of kidneys. Each kidney is composed of hundreds of glomeruli. Glomerulonephritis can be primary or secondary to other diseases and conditions. However, the general cause of glomerulonephritis is immune disorder. The hyperactive immune system causes inflammation of kidneys, thus leading to progressive renal function loss.

Healthy kidneys can filter out extra fluid from body. Therefore, this can keep the blood volume at a certain level. However, in glomerulonephritis, when kidneys become impaired, the diseased kidneys can not eliminate the fluid from body, thus leading to high blood pressure.

Another cause of high blood pressure is the activation of RAS system. When less blood flows through kidneys, more renin will be made by kidneys. Renin is a kind of hormone. On one hand, it can increase the level of angiotensin. On the other hand, it can increase the production of aldosterone. Aldosterone can increase the retention of sodium and fluid in blood vessels. Thereby, high blood pressure will result in glomerulonephritis.

How to lower high blood pressure in glomerulonephritis?

Generally, ACE inhibitors and ARB drugs are used to lower high blood pressure. These drugs not only can lower blood pressure, but also can protect the residual renal function.

Diuretics are also commonly used. They can help lower high blood pressure in glomerulonephritis by increasing urine output.

However, since the underlying cause of high blood pressure in glomerulonephritis is kidney impairment. To lower blood pressure fundamentally, the patients should have a treatment to repair the diseased kidneys and recover their function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an effective treatment for glomerulonephritis with high blood pressure. For more information, you can leave a message below.
