Polycystic Kidney Disease with high blood pressure how to treat it ? High blood pressure is one of the common symptoms of PKD, the good control of it is helpful for slow down the progression of PKD. Without good control the high blood pressure will make the disease more complex and will speed up the progression of this disease.
It is said that 4 out of 10 people with polycystic kidney disease will have high blood pressure which usually occurs in their 20s~30s. It attacks 50% to 70% of cases before any significant reduction in glomerular filtration rate within an average age onset of 30 years of age.
Why PKD patient will get high blood pressure ?
The high blood pressure caused by PKD is due to the clusters of cysts oppress the normal renal tissues, and then result in the renal anoxia, ischemia and renal hypoperfusion. Long-term oppression from the cysts leads to renal ischemia, just as I said before, and gives rise to the increase of renin. Increased renin angiotensin and therefore accounts for the shrink of blood vessels in kidneys. High blood pressure occurs as a result of all those chain reactions. What’s worse, the large amount of renin and angiotension aggravate the hypertension the other way round.
Medicines for high blood pressure
In the view of treatments for Polycystic Kidney Disease, many current treatments such as ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blockers, those drugs remain the most recommended drugs to treat hypertension in patients with PKD. But if you want to solve this problem permonatly you should treat this disease from its root, you know the enlarged cysts is the main cause of high blood pressure.
