Is Kidney Failure Caused by Uncontrolled High Blood PressureSome people find that they get kidney failure after years of high blood pressure. Is kidney failure caused by uncontrolled high blood pressure? The answer is certain. Some researches show that high blood pressure is the second leading cause of kidney failure.

As a matter as fact, kidney is made up of thousands of capillaries. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can narrow, weaken or harden the arteries around the kidneys so as to affect the blood flow into the kidneys. Due to ischemia and anoxia, your kidneys are damaged.

Besides, exposed to high blood pressure for years, those capillaries become fragile so that substance in blood such as red blood cells and protein are oppressed into the urine. As long as the filtration system of kidneys are damaged, kidney failure occurs.

-In diet, you should restrict the intake of salt, because sodium retains water in body and raises blood pressure further. Besides, you had better avoid food high in sodium, such as pickles, canned foods, bacon, etc.

-Doing moderate exercise is also helpful for you to control blood pressure. It can also reduce cholesterol level, boost immune system, improve appetite, etc. Walking, jogging, bicycling, yoga and tai chi are all good choices for you.

-If you are still in the early stage of kidney failure, you can supplement moderate potassium, for potassium can counter the effect of sodium so as to reduce blood pressure.

-Because kidney is also responsible for regulating blood pressure, it is necessary for you to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function.
