2015-06-09 14:38

What Causes Hypertensive NephropathyHigh blood pressure or hypertension is very common in our daily life. However, few people will associate hypertension with kidney disease. High blood pressure can lead to kidney disease which is the complication of hypertension. The following will explain the cause of hypertensive nephropathy in detail. 

Causes of hypertensive nephropathy

1. Kidney damage

In general, kidney’s secreting function will cause unstable blood pressure. Because kidney has the function of secrete hormones and renin plays a role in regulating blood pressure. Normally renin secreted by kidney is able to stabilize blood pressure while when kidneys are damaged, they will secrete excessive renin, which will make blood pressure elevated. At this time, renal artery resistance will also increase so as to lead to further elevation in blood pressure. The more severe kidney damage, the more renin will have and the higher blood pressure is.

2. Renal parenchymal damage

If factors for resistance to pressure decrease, it will also lead to hypertensive nephropathy. It has close relation with renal parenchyma damage. When renal parenchyma is damaged, it will secrete less prostaglandin. At this time, if renin secretion is normal or high, it will lead to hormone metabolism disorders so as to cause high blood pressure.

As long as patients take effective treatment, they can regain their health.

Treatment for hypertensive nephropathy

1. Acupuncture

It is to insert needles into certain acupoints to block beta-acceptor of sympathetic nerve and stimulate adrenaline-angiotensin system so as to achieve the goal of lowering high blood pressure.

2. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

This therapy is an external application and two bags with powered Chinese medicine are put on patients’ back. The medicines can reach into kidney lesion directly through osmosis device. These Chinese medicines can dilate blood vessels, prevent inflammation and coagulation, degrade extracellular matrix, provide nutrients and repair damaged kidney tissues.
