Causes of hypertension

PKD is a hereditary disease characterized by the growing fluid-filled cysts. With the enlargement of kidney cysts, they will oppress the healthy kidney tissues and renal blood vessels so as to reduce blood flow the tissues. When the receptors in the kidneys receive this signal, they will raise the production of renin to elevate angiotensin, making the blood vessels to shrink and blood pressure increases. High blood pressure and kidney function impairment is vicious circle. Kidney function impairment can give rise to high blood pressure and high blood pressure can further damage the kidneys. Therefore PKD patients should attach importance to the treatment of high blood pressure.

Treatment of hypertension

The conventional treatment for high blood pressure is to take ACEI, ARB, CCB, diuretics and so on. They can bring high blood pressure down quickly, but they can not repair the damaged kidneys. Therefore, with the progression of PKD, you have to take more and more drugs to control blood pressure. Because hypertension is caused by these cysts. We should set about controlling these cysts.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Omostherapy can dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting so as to reduce blood pressure. Besides, it can speed up the blood flow in the cyst wall so that the fluid cyst can be reabsorbed by the blood flow. In this way, the inner pressure of the cysts decreases and kidney cysts become small, reducing the damage to the kidneys. Moreover, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can restrain the proliferation of renal tubule epithelial cells and the secretion of lining cells to prevent the cysts from enlarging again.

Hypertension should be reduced as early as possible, or it does not only affect your kidneys but also the heart.
