Early detection of disease is very important for patients to receive early treatment. Therefore, it is very important for the patients to know the early symptoms of Hypertensive Nephropathy.
Usually, edema is the primary symptom of Hypertensive Nephropathy. The
patients usually firstly have edema on their eyelids or faces in the morning.
However, it often disappears in the afternoon. Moreover, after overwork, the
edema can aggravate. What’s worse, some patients even may have hydrothorax and
ascites, which can cause difficulty breath.
2. Foam in urine
For the patients with Hypertensive Nephropathy, the foam in their urine can
persist for a long time for the protein loss in urine. Usually, the patients
only have mild or moderate proteinuria and the urine protein is less than 2
grams in 24 hours. However, some patients may have mass proteinuria(>3.5
grams/ 24 hours).
3. Increased urination at night
Increased urination at night is an early symptom of Hypertensive Nephropathy,
which proves that the renal tubular has had ischemic pathological changes.
Microscopy examination only shows a very small number of red blood and cast.
For some individuals, they may have glomerular blood capillary rupturing so they
may have transient gross hematuria.
In addition, the patients with Hypertensive Nephropathy are also accompanied
with left ventricular hypertrophy, coronary disease, heart failure, cerebral
arteriosclerosis, and retinopathy and so on.
Hypertensive Nephropathy is among the patients aging 40~50 with 5~10 years of
hypertension. As the disease progresses very slowly into Renal Failure, the
patients have enough time to take preventive measures and receive treatment in
time. If they can grasp the best therapeutic opportunity, they will be able to
get rid the chance of developing Renal Failure.
