Help Control And Treat High Blood Pressure in PKD
High blood pressure is a common complication of Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). About 50% of young PKD patients have blood pressure higher than 140-90mmHg and nearly all PKD patients develop high blood pressure in ESRD. Learning how to control and treat high blood pressure for PKD patients seems to be very important.
Controlling blood pressure has a lot of benefits for PKD patients. High blood pressure is a major risk factor for speeding up deterioration of kidney function and therefore a relatively low and stable blood pressure can enable a better prognosis for PKD patients.
