Hypertension is a major cause of hypertensive nephropathy and renal failure. Hypertension leads to the defeat of the arteries in the kidneys, resulting in impaired function of filtration. This, in turn, manifested renal insufficiency.
Manifestations of renal disease in hypertension:
Elevated blood pressure,
Reducing the number of urine
Swelling of soft tissues,
Increased urination, especially at night.
Diagnosis of renal disease in hypertension
As is the case with hypertension, you may not even suspect that you have developed hypertensive nephropathy. Therefore, patients with high blood pressure should consult regularly with your doctor and take some research.
Research that can identify renal dysfunction:
Blood test for creatinine,
Analysis of blood urea nitrogen,
A blood test for total protein,
Analysis of urine for protein.
When renal dysfunction caused by hypertension, there is an increase in blood levels of creatinine and urea nitrogen, as well as raising the level of protein in the urine. In the blood, as there is a slight decrease in total protein.
Prevention and treatment of hypertensive renal disease with hypertension
Prevention is adequate control of hypertension, compliance with appropriate diet and medication.
Treatment of renal disease in hypertension usually involves the use of drugs of ACE inhibitors or angiotensin receptor angiotensin II.
