How to properly take medicine for patients with Hypertensive Nephropathy?
Long term of Hypertension can cause damage to kidney namely for Hypertensive
Nephropathy, which includes malignant renal small atherosclerosis and benign
renal small atherosclerosis. Malignant renal small atherosclerosis is caused by
rapid development of high blood pressure and benign renal small atherosclerosis
is caused by long term Hypertension. The condition can represent ischemia,
anoxia, fibrosis, sclerosis or necrosis,etc. If not treated timely, Hypertensive
Nephropathy may develop into Renal Insufficiency or even Uremia. Consequently,
patients should pay more attention to their condition and take care of
themselves. Here are some attentions for taking medicine:
They should pay more attention to well controlling and steadying their blood
pressure. To achieve this, they should pay attention to those advisement as
One, avoid taking medicine blindly: there are various of hypotensor which
have different functions. Patients with Hypertension should follow doctors'
advisement to take medicine according to their own condition.
Two, they should avoid taking a single kind of medicine except for those who
have a slight Hypertension or just develop Hypertension. It is better for them
to take compound treatment.
Three, patients should avoid take medicine without monitoring blood pressure,
and they had better measure blood pressure at regular time and adjust the dosage
to maintain it at an ideal range.
Four, avoid taking hypotensor without continuity: some patients take
hypotensor when they find the blood pressure is higher than the normal range and
stop taking medicine when the blood pressure is in the normal level, which can
not well control or steady the blood pressure but also make the condition get
Five, avoid taking medicine before sleep: it is better to take the medicine 2
hours before going to bed.
In addition, when patients take medicine they should choose proper medicine
and pay attention to its renal toxicity. Although there are various of
hypotensor, for patients with Hypertensive Nephropathy, they had better choose
medicine which not only can protect kidney but also relieve some symptoms in
clinic such as Valsartan.
Attention please any kind of medicine that is suitable for patients'
condition is the good medicine, but any kind of good medicine should be taken on
regular time. Further more, they should measure blood pressure at regular
intervals and adjust the dosage according to doctors' advisement.
Kidney is the organ with the highest blood pressure and it is also the organ
which can be more easily damaged. Long term of Hypertension can lead to
Hypertensive Nephropathy and the damaged kidney can cause the blood pressure's
increase in turn. So when patients take hypotensor they should also pay
attention to protecting kidney.
