With illness condition progressing, most of Polycystic Kidney Disease patients will have a high blood pressure which is a common symptom of Polycystic Kidney Disease patients, but is also commonly neglected by patients. But why patients will have high blood pressure?
Actually, high blood pressure caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease is much
more serious than the primary high blood pressure. Because once high blood
pressure happens, it means the further aggravation of this disease. Due to
various internal and external factors, cysts of Polycystic Kidney Disease
patients keep enlarging and they will produce pressure on surrounding kidney
tissue and blood vessel, resulting in less blood flow in local part. The
receptor in kidney will have a reaction of producing more rennin after getting
the signal of less blood flow. As a result, the concentration of Angiotensin
will increase, and then blood vessel will shrink so that blood pressure
increases. High blood pressure and kidney function damage affect each other
mutually. For this reason, Polycystic Kidney Disease patients must control their
blood pressure within a normal range.
In another word, once Polycystic Kidney Disease patients begin to have the
symptom of high blood pressure, it means their kidney function is about to
decline or have already declined. Therefore, high blood pressure can be
considered as an obvious symptom that shows the disease progressing from stage 2
to stage 3. So patients should pat high attention on their blood pressure and
accept treatment as early as possibly with the purpose of avoiding further
kidney function damage.
However, only control blood pressure is not enough. If kidney function can
not be improved, blood pressure will not keep steady even if we have adopted to
control blood pressure because kidney damage which is the real reason of blood
pressure increasing is not repaired. So on one hand, we should control blood
pressure effectively, and on the other, we should also accept treatment to
repair kidney damage actively so that both kidney and blood pressure can be in a
steady condition. If you need more information about this, you can email to firstname.lastname@example.org or consult us online directly.
