Hypertensive nephropathy is caused by persistent high blood pressure. The patients with hypertensive nephropathy are usually 40 to 50 years old and have high blood pressure for 5 to 10 years. In the kidneys, there are a large amount of blood vessels which can filter the blood and discharge out the waste products and toxins from the blood. High blood pressure makes renal blood vessels in a station of high filtration and high transfusion, which can lead to overwork of kidney. As this situation keeps a long time, kidney will be damaged gradually.

Not every one with high blood pressure will develop into kidney disease. Only a part of patients with high blood pressure have higher risk of suffering from hypertensive nephropathy. Generally speaking, people with poor control of blood pressure have a higher risk. Also, the longer time they suffer from high blood pressure, the more likely they develop hypertensive nephropathy.
