How to Treat High Blood Pressure Caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)
High blood pressure may be the first sign of PKD, and may be diagnosed with kidney function is normal. How to treat high blood pressure caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)? Read on to learn more information.
How does PKD cause hypertension?
The main reason for the occurrence of polycystic kidney hypertension is that the increasing cysts oppress some blood vessels in the kidney, which reduces the local blood. The receptors in the kidney feel this signal and reflex it to increase renin production, and then increase the concentration of angiotensin and make blood vessels narrow, resulting in the increase of blood pressure in the whole body of PKD patients. Most patients with polycystic kidney disease have hypertension.
If PKD patients can not control hypertension timely, it will continue to increase the pathological damage of kidney, make renal fibrosis, increased serum creatinine, and worsen the condition of PKD.
Treatment for high blood pressure caused by PKD
Renal hypertension caused by polycystic kidney disease is different from primary hypertension. For hypertension caused by polycystic kidney, the key to its treatment should be to treat polycystic kidney, relieve the pressure of cyst on kidney, relieve the pressure of cyst on renal parenchyma, delay or block the process of renal fibrosis so as to treat hypertension from the root.
Through traditional Chinese medicine treatment, expanding renal artery and increasing blood perfusion of kidney can also improve microcirculation, increase oxygen supply and enhance metabolism of the whole body, thereby changing the activity of cystic wall cells, increasing permeability, and taking away cystic fluid; at the same time, it can prevent cystic wall cells from secreting cystic fluid and radically reduce cysts. It relieves the symptoms of cyst compression on nephron, alleviates ischemia and hypoxia of normal kidney tissue, and delays the process of renal fibrosis.

This not only alleviates the occurrence of hypertension, but also with the release of angiotensin factor weakened, vascular relaxation factor increases, promote the blood circulation of the cyst wall, make the blood vessels become relaxed. And then blood pressure will also be gradually controlled.
In addition, some TCM drugs target damaged fibrotic tissue, myofibroblasts and immune complexes. After fusion, a series of effective drug ingredients are released, which degrade the fibrous tissue and immune complex of the lesion, block the deterioration chain of renal fibers, and provide necessary substances for repairing damaged nephrons. Only after the repair of the renal structure can the renal function be reconstructed and restored, and the clinical symptoms be improved.
Generally speaking, after about half month’s treatment, high blood pressure will become down.
After about one month’s treatment, kidney cysts will shrink, and renal condition will get improved.
