    High Blood Pressure in stage 2 PKD

    2014-05-20 08:21| Font Size A A A

    High Blood Pressure in stage 2 PKDPKD is a genetic kidney disease, and cysts in patient’s kidney will grow bigger and bigger, which will damage patient’s kidney structure in this process. As a result, patient’s kidney function will be reduced gradually.

    Kidney is a very important organ for our body health, and when it is damaged, many health problems will appear. In fact, high blood pressure is a common complication of PKD, and it can even appear in PKD stage 2.

    What is stage 2 PKD?

    PKD is a chronic kidney disease, and CKD is divied into five stages according to patient’s GFR. The GFR range of stage 2 CKD is 60~89ml/min, which means patient’s kidney function is damaged mildly.

    In fact, our kidney has strong metabolic ability, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. Thereby, patients with kidney disease will not have health problems caused by their kidney damage unless the damaged kidney function is more than half.

    For healthy people, their GFR can reach 120ml/min. So, if patients are in stage 2 PKD, they should not have obvious health problem. However, hypertension really can appear in patients with stage 2 PKD.

    Why patients with stage 2 PKD have hypertension?

    Kidney is an important organ in regulating our internal metabolic balances, and it can also regulate our blood pressure. While for patients with PKD, hypertension is a most common complication, and it even can appear in stage 2 PKD.

    That is because kidney has the ability of regulating our blood pressure, which is achieved by secreting renin. When patients are in PKD stage 2, their enlarged renal cysts can oppress the surrounding tissues, which can reduce the blood flow in kidney. As a result, that will stimulate kidney to secrete more renin, and after a series of reactions, patient’s blood vessels will be shrunk, which will increase patient’s blood pressure.

    Hypertension should be well controlled, or it can aggravate patient’s kidney damage obviously. In fact, medicines and diet are important aspects for patients to control their blood pressure.

    PKD is a major cause of kidney failure, and it can cause many health problems. Thereby, patients should take positive measures to improve their condition.
