Hypertensive Nephropathy

What is Hypertensive Nephropathy?

The hypertensive nephropathy is kidney disease. The blood pressure (high blood pressure) damages the vasculature in the kidneys.

Hypertensive Nephropathy statistics

The impacts of this condition closely follow the incidence and duration of the person’s high blood pressure. Two kinds of this disease include benign nephrosclerosis and malignant nephrosclerosis.

Hypertensive nephropathy risk factors

Benign nephrosclerosis:

  • Low blood pressure
  • Type1, Type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Malignant Nephrosclerosis:

  • Hypertension malignancy (diastolic hypertension of more than 130 mm Hg)
  • Men are more prone to have this condition
  • Hypertension Pre-existing
  • Renal disorder pre-existing

Hypertensive nephropathy development

  • Hypertensive nephropathy development:- Renal failure is seldom caused by this condition. Due to renal damage, it can be considered that patients are less resistant to the renal and thus less equipped for surgery stress or acute disease. Steps to shield the kidneys from any preventable damage must be taken before the illness and before the operation.
  • Malignant nephrosclerosis:- This type of nephrosclerosis is only present when diastolic blood pressure exceeds 130 mm Hg is severely hypertensive. Patients typically have a kidney condition that has advanced to malignant hypertension. Protein and blood may appear in the urine at the onset of increased blood pressure. Hours or days later, renal function decreases and the patient develops renal failure rapidly. It is an emergency and any attempt must be taken in order to lower blood pressure and protect the operation of the kidney.

What is the diagnosis of Hypertensive Nephropathy?

Blood checks can be important to assess how well the kidneys perform. Urine collection may also be needed over 24 hours to measure the seriousness of hypertension-related kidney disease.

What is the treatment of Hypertensive Nephropathy?

The treatment of both malignant and benign types of disease includes the regulation of hypertension. It can essentially remove the stimulus for further renal damage by using antihypertensive medicines. To maximize commitment to antihypertensive treatment the value of antihypertensive medicine must be underlined.
