How Can My Kidney Cause Blood Pressure Go Up
Kidneys can affect blood pressure. When kidneys are damaged, blood pressure will go up. Then, how can kidneys cause blood pressure go up? What is the treatment?
First, let’s know how kidneys affect blood pressure.
1. Increase sodium and water absorption
High salt intake causes more fluid retention. This makes your heart work harder and eventually makes blood vessels narrow and harden. Salt can also stimulate the brain, kidneys, and adrenal glands, leading to higher blood pressure.
2. Cause vasoconstriction
The narrowing of blood vessels raises the pressure inside the vessels, causing a rise in blood pressure.
3. Stimulate renin secretion
Renin is a hormone secreted by kidneys which causes production of another hormone called aldosterone, leading to more salt and fluid retention.
What treatments are for hypertension in kidney disease?
1. Medications are available, including acetylcholine esterase inhibitors and angiotensine receptor blockers.
2. Limit your daily salt intake to 2,000 milligrams or lower if you already have high blood pressure. Read nutrition labels on packaged foods to learn how much sodium is in one serving. Limit caffeine intake. Choose fruits, vegetables, grains, and low fat dairy foods.
3. Chinese Medicine Treatments are used to treat kidney disease. They first cleanse your blood to give a clean blood environment. Chinese medicines can draw out toxins and wastes from your blood and kidney cells. Then Chinese medicines can arrive at your kidney lesion directly to repair kidney damage and improve renal function gradually through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients. This can treat kidney disease radically and then blood pressure can also be managed well.
