High Blood Pressure Kidney Disease Is Dangerous

High blood pressure kidney disease is a type of condition in which long term elevated blood pressure has lead to the development of kidney disease.  This type of blood pressure causes your heart to work harder.  Over a period of time, the blood vessels throughout the body are damaged from this strain.  One of the areas most often affected is the kidney.

When the blood vessels in your kidneys are damaged, your body cannot remove the extra fluids and waste matter properly. The buildup of fluid and waste in your body is quite dangerous.

Extra fluid in the blood vessels can cause blood pressure to rise even more, further straining the heart.  These extra fluid can fills the lungs or other organs, causing them to stop working properly or at all.

In most cases kidney failure may develop. High Blood Pressure Kidney Disease is known as end stage renal disease or ESRD. One of the leading causes of this condition is high blood pressure.

Those who have this type of kidney failure must receive a kidney transplant or they need to have dialysis completed regularly, which cleans the body of waste. According to some estimates, 25,000 people each year are diagnosed with kidney failure within the United States

Avoiding Complications With High Blood Pressure Kidney Disease


These are just some of the most significant effects that can occur if you have high blood pressure. However, it's important to note that many of these dangerous complications can be avoided through care taken to prevent high blood pressure or to lower it.

In fact, it's possible to reduce the risk of developing kidney diseases by maintaining a lower blood pressure by doing a number of these methods including:

  • Improve lifestyle choices such as not smoking or consuming alcohol and by being physically active

  • Eat a healthy diet that's rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables

  • Take natural supplements to reduce blood pressure naturally, such as using CoQ10, garlic and fish oil

  • Maintain a healthy body weight or lose weight

Getting More Help

If your doctor has told you that you have high blood pressure, medications are available that can help. Even if you'd like to reduce your blood pressure naturally, in some situations, it may be necessary to use medications as well.

However, it's important to note that the sooner you reduce blood pressure, the less damage is done to each of the blood vessels in the body.
