Kidney disease refers to progressive loss in renal function. As the kidneys fail to function properly,a host of symptoms will appear.Headache and high blood pressure are two common signs of kidney disease.

Headache in kidney disease

The major culprit of headache in kidney disease is renal hypertension.In kidney disease,as the nephrons are impaired, more renin will be produced by kidneys.As renin can narrow blood vessels,increased renin will result in high blood pressure. High blood pressure can contribute to headache.

Anemia is also a possible contributor of headache in kidney disease. Kidneys can produce EPO which can stimulate the bone marrow to produce red blood cells.Meanwhile,the high levels of toxins and wastes can shorten the life span of red blood cells. As red blood cells can distribute oxygen to body tissues and cells,the patients may suffer from headache if no adequate oxygen is provided to brain.

High blood pressure in kidney disease

High blood pressure can be a cause of kidney disease and also can accelerate renal function decline.As mentioned above, increased secretion of renin is one cause of high blood pressure. In addition, high buildup of fluid in body also can contribute to high blood pressure in kidney disease.As kidneys are impaired, they become less capable to remove fluid from body.Also,as cardiovascular disease is a very common complication of kidney disease. Narrowing of blood vessels and high levels of lipid etc also can affect blood pressure.
