ADPKD is more commonly seen in clinic than ARPKD and it is an important cause of kidney failure.In initial stage,it develops asymptomatically.However,as the disease progresses,a host of symptoms will appear,in which high blood pressure and headache are very common.

High blood pressure in ADPKD

High blood pressure is an early sign of kidney damage in ADPKD. As the cysts enlarge,they will cause pressure against the adjacent kidney tissues,thus resulting in renal ischemia and anoxia.When kidneys can not get enough oxygen and blood supply,they will produce more renin.The renin,a kind of hormone, will contract blood vessels,resulting in high blood pressure.

Headache in ADPKD

High blood pressure is a significant cause of headache in ADPKD.

Another possible cause of headache in ADPKD is cerebral aneurysm.Besides cysts in kidneys,cysts also can develop in other organs including brain.Cerebral aneurysm is a very serious condition in ADPKD.If the aneurysm ruptures,it can be life-threatening.High blood pressure can increase the risk of aneurysm rupturing.
