Polycystic Kidney Disease and High Blood Pressure

4 out of 10 people with polycystic kidney disease will have high blood pressure which usually occurs in their 20s~30s. It attacks 50% to 70% of cases before any significant reduction in glomerular filtration rate within an average age onset of 30 years of age.

Polycystic Kidney Disease

PKD is the abbreviation of Polycystic Kidney Disease, also known as polycystic renal disease. It is one of the most common life-threatening genetic disorders, in which the clusters of cysts develop in the kidneys. The cysts are full of sac. Those cysts can grow large enough to cause Chronic Renal Failure in the long run. Serious consequences of the disease are that it affects not just kidneys but also other organs. The disease can cause those clusters of cysts to grow in the liver or even elsewhere.

High blood pressure Caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease

The high blood pressure caused by PKD is due to the clusters of cysts oppress the normal renal tissues, and then result in the renal anoxia, ischemia and renal hypoperfusion. Long-term oppression from the cysts leads to renal ischemia, just as I said before, and gives rise to the increase of renin. Increased renin angiotensin and therefore accounts for the shrink of blood vessels in kidneys. High blood pressure occurs as a result of all those chain reactions. What’s worse, the large amount of renin and angiotension aggravate the hypertension the other way round.

Recommended Treatment for High Blood Pressure and PKD

However, hypertension is just one of the common symptoms of Polycystic Kidney Disease. Dealing with elevated blood pressure should not be the ultimate goal, but only secondary to the bigger picture—which is to treat PKD in the first place.

In the view of treatments for Polycystic Kidney Disease, many current treatments such as ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blockers, those drugs remain the most recommended drugs to treat hypertension in patients with PKD. However, things change in people whose medical condition has already progressed to ESRD (end-stage renal disease), those medications may aggravate the illness condition and elevate the serum creatinine levels. Well, what should we do now? Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can do the job well. This natural therapy helps shrink the cysts and lower blood pressure naturally.
