How Do Calcium Channel Blockers Affect Kidney FailureKidney failure can raise blood pressure. High blood pressure without control can lead to further damage to kidneys and increase your risk of heart disease. Therefore, early treatment is needed for you to lower blood pressure. One kind of antihypertensive drugs is CCB. CCBs is the short for calcium channel blockers. How do calcium channel blocks affect kidney failure?

Now let’s have a quick look at CCBs and kidney failure.

CCBs are effective antihypertensive drugs to be considered alone or in comnination with ACEI or ARB to control blood pressure, reduce protein leakage and halt the progression of renal failure. In the end stage renal failure, CCBs can still be used, while ACEI and ARB should be limited, because ACEI and ARB may reduce blood perfusion so as to increase creatinine level further. Besides, heart failure is a common complication of kidney failure. Some CCBs have little effect on heart rate and contraction so they are safer to use for those with heart failure.

However, CCBs have many side effects, such as constipation, nausea, headache, rash, edema, etc.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is to penetrate micronized Chinese herbs into the kidneys. When the active ingredients reach the kidneys, they can dilate blood vessels to lower blood pressure. They can also remove stasis to improve blood circulation in the kidneys. Besides, they can increase blood flow into the kidneys and eliminate deposited immune complexes to inhibit kidney inflammation.
