Is Hypertension Very Bad For Patient With PKD

Is Hypertension Very Bad For Patient With Hypertension To Have HypertensionHigh blood pressure is very common in patient with polycystic kidney disease (PKD), and patient with PKD will often hear his doctor advising him to be careful in preventing hypertension. Is high blood pressure very bad for patient with PKD?

High blood pressure can appear very early in patient with PKD. In fact, it is a complication of PKD, and it can aggravate patient’s condition severely.

Is hypertension very bad for patient with PKD?

Hypertension can damage patient’s blood vessel, and if patient’s hypertension has not been well controlled for a long time, it can cause arteriosclerosis in patient’s glomeruli. Besides, hypertension will narrow patient’s blood vessel, and that can promote the shortage of blood flow, which can aggravate patient’s kidney condition.

In fact, for patient who has hypertension, his condition will be aggravated more obviously, and his cysts will grow much faster than others. Thereby, hypertension can be very bad for patient with PKD.

Why patient with PKD often has hypertension?

High blood pressure in patient with kidney disease is mainly caused by two major reasons. One is the retention of sodium and fluid in body, and the other is the excretion of renin.

High blood pressure caused by the retention of sodium and fluid is more likely to appear in the late stage of kidney disease, while for patient with PKD, he can have high blood pressure when he is still in the early stage, so PKD patient’s high blood pressure is caused by the abnormal excretion of hormone excretion.

In fact, as kidney cysts grow bigger and bigger, patient’s kidney structure will be oppressed, which can cause the decrease of blood flow in patient’s kidneys. The shortage of blood flow in kidney will stimulate kidney to excrete renin, and after a seres of reaction, patient’s blood vessel will be shrunk, and hypertension will appear.

Thereby, it is important for PKD patient to take measures to control his blood pressure, and many hypotensors are very effective, like ACEI, ARB, etc.
