With Hypertension, impact to vascular wall becomes large, which can damage our blood vessels directly. Long-term high blood pressure damages more and more renal blood vessels, as a result of which, kidney damage is formed and also Hypertensive Nephropathy can be caused.

In our body, compared with large blood vessels, these tiny renal blood vessels are damaged more easily. Therefore, in case of Hypertensive Nephropathy, damages of renal tubules usually occur firstly. Renal tubule has function to reabsorb nutrition and fluids that leaked from glomeruli. Therefore, once renal tubules are damaged, reabsorption decreases, leading to proteinuria and frequent urination.

Therefore, for people with both high blood pressure and kidney problem, they need to find out the real relationship between their kidney problem and high blood pressure.
