Hypertension control decreases albuminuria, slows progression to end stage renal disease, and improves survival. Therefore, many Diabetic Nephropathy patients ask how to treat hypertension.

The fundamental cause of hypertension is your abnormal blood circulation and low kidney function. Long-term high blood sugar can damage blood circulation throughout the body as well as kidneys. Low kidney function makes kidneys not regulate blood pressure correctly. As a result, high blood pressure occurs easily. Besides, smoking, drinking, and obesity are also the causes of hypertension.

First, you should develop good habit in the daily life. Limit the intake of sodium, stop smoking and drinking as soon as possible, and control your weight. Doing proper exercise is also good for your health.
Second, controlling your high blood sugar is also helpful for controlling high blood pressure.
Third, you can take some hypotensive drugs, such as thiazide diuretics, ACE inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), calcium channel blockers (CCBs), and β-blockers. They are really effective in controlling high blood pressure, but their side effects are also obvious. They can cause constipation, headache,tachycardia and so on.
Last, the natural Chinese medicine is maybe a good choice, for example, the Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. After being shattered throughly, you can penetrate it into your damaged kidneys with the help of osmosis devices. This medicine can help repair the damaged kidneys and normalize blood circulation. Then, you can reduce the chance of suffering from high blood pressure.
