Why high blood pressure can cause kidney disease?

Hypertension itself can cause kidney problems. If long-term blood pressure increases, it can lead to failure of renal function, leading to a significant decline in the quality of life of the patient. Therefore, from this perspective, the prevention and treatment of kidney disease damage must first strictly control blood pressure.

Why high blood pressure can cause kidney disease?

In fact, kidney disease itself can cause high blood pressure, but also some of the so-called secondary causes of hypertension.

So discussing the effects of hypertension and nephropathy from these two angles will be more comprehensive.

Because of the relatively low incidence of secondary hypertension, only 5% to 10%, so mainly caused by high blood pressure kidney disease. Why does this happen? Because the kidneys themselves cause increased pressure on the blood vessels, long-term high blood pressure can lead to hardening of these small blood vessels, eventually leading to hypofunction, which gradually evolves to cause all glomeruli to harden or degenerate eventually lead to renal insufficiency.

Renal insufficiency will lead to a series of adverse patient outcomes, the end result is the need for dialysis or kidney transplant, if the event of renal insufficiency, the patient's quality of life significantly reduced. Therefore, in order to improve the quality of life of hypertensive patients, strict control of blood pressure is very important.

If high blood pressure occurs with diabetes, then the chances of developing diabetic nephropathy or kidney damage will increase even more dramatically, but there is no definitive figure to say how many percent of the disease gets sick. Different duration, the severity of different hypertension, the result is not the same, it is difficult to give an exact incidence. But it can be said that if the long-term blood pressure control is not good, it will cause damage to the kidneys.
