The causes of hypertension induced nephropathy

Hypertension can cause kidney damage and lead to kidney disease.

Clinically, renal damage is common in hypertensive patients, and once the kidney is diseased, it can lead to a further rise in blood pressure. Long term control of blood pressure may cause slow change of renal microenvironment and decrease of renal function. Data show that, after 5 to 10 years of hypertension, may appear mild to moderate renal arteriosclerosis, and then lead to renal ischemia, atrophy, and even lead to renal failure. In this period of time, patients will not appear obvious symptoms of kidney disease, only through the detection of indicators such as microalbuminuria, can see abnormal.

Renal function test should be considered as one of routine items in hypertensive nephropathy. Especially patients with nephropathy after 3 or 5 years, every six months to one year, regular to renal hospital have urine routine test, detection of trace albumin. If renal function declines, especially glomerular filtration rate is less than 30 ml / min, renal treatment should be performed as soon as possible.
