Hypertensive Kidney Disease
Hypertension can cause severe kidney diseases, called hypertensive kidney disease. High blood pressure constricts and narrows the blood vessels throughout the body and affects the kidney's blood supply. It leads to damage to the kidney, and the blood can’t be filtered well, which in return can cause higher blood pressure because of fluid retention and can cause more damage to the kidney, leading to kidney failure.
Risk factors of hypertensive kidney diseases are:
- Old age: At an older age, the blood vessels thicken, and it can lead to hypertension.
- Unhealthy lifestyle.
- Genetic history of hypertension.
At SS Kidney and Urology Hospital, we provide compassionate care and top-quality treatment for hypertensive kidney diseases.
