Kidney Failure

Blood pressure can cause kidney failure, blood pressure readings are measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg) and usually given as 2 numbers. For example, 140 over 90 (written as 140/90).

The top number is your systolic pressure, the pressure created when your heart beats. It is considered high if it is consistently over 140.

The bottom number is your diastolic pressure, the pressure inside blood vessels when the heart is at rest. It is considered high if it is consistently over 90.

Either or both of these numbers may be too high.

Pre-hypertension is when your systolic blood pressure is between 120 and 139 or your diastolic blood pressure is between 80 and 89 on multiple readings. If you have pre-hypertension, you are more likely to develop high blood pressure at some point.

Alternative Names
High blood pressure; HBP; Blood pressure – high cause hypertension

Causes, incidence, and risk factors
Blood pressure measurements are the result of the force of the blood produced by the heart and the size and condition of the arteries.

Many factors can affect blood pressure, including how much water and salt you have in your body, the condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels, and the levels of different body hormones.

High blood pressure can affect all types of people. You have a higher risk of high blood pressure if you have a family history of the disease. High blood pressure is more common in African Americans than Caucasians.

Most of the time, no cause is identified. This is called essential hypertension.

High blood pressure that results from a specific condition, habit, or medication is called secondary hypertension. Too much salt in your diet can lead to high blood pressure. Secondary hypertension may also be due to:
  • Kidney failure
  • Alcohol poisoning Renal artery stenosis
  • Adrenal gland tumor
  • Anxitety and stress Renal vascular obstructions or narrowing
  • Appetite suppressants Migraine medicines
  • Arteriosclerosis Hemolytic-uremic syndrome
  • Birth control pills Obesity
  • Certain cold medicines Pain
  • Coarctation of the aorta Periarteritis nodosa
  • Cocaine use Radiation enteritis
  • Cushing syndrome Renal artery stenosis
  • Diabetes Retroperitonial fibrosis
  • Kidney disease, including: Wilms’ tumor
  • Glomerulonephrities Pregnancy
  • Inflammation of kidneys) (called gestational hypertension)

Symptoms

Most of the time, there are no symptoms. Symptoms that may occur include:
  • Confusion Vision changes
  • Chest pain Tiredness
  • Ear noise or buzzing Nosebleed
  • Irregular heartbeat

If you have a severe headache or any of the symptoms above, see your doctor right away. This may be a signs of a complication or dangerously high blood pressure called malignant hypertension.

Signs and tests
Your health care provider will perform a physicalexam and check your blood pressure. If the measurement is high, your doctor may think you have hypertension. The measurements need to be repeated over time, so that the diagnosis can be confirmed.

If you monitor your blood pressure at home, you may be asked the following questions:
 
  • What was your most recent blood pressure reading?
  • What was the previous blood pressure reading?
  • What is the average systolic (top number) and diastolic (bottom number)?
  • Has your blood pressure increased recently?

Other tests may be done to look for blood in urine or heart failure. Your doctor will look for signs of complications to your heart, kidneys, eyes, and other organs in your body.

These tests may include:
  • Echocardiogram
  • Urinalysis
  • X-ray of kidney

Treatment :

  • Aortic dissection Hypertensive heart disease
  • Blood vessel damage Brain damage Stroke
  • Congestive heart failure Vision loss

If you have high blood pressure, you will have regularly scheduled appointments with your doctor.

Even if you have not been diagnosed with high blood pressure, it is important to have your blood pressure checked during your yearly check-up, especially if someone in your family has or had high blood pressure.

Call your health care provider right away if home monitoring shows that your blood pressure remains high or you have any of the following symptoms:
  • Chest pain Severe headache
  • Confusion Shortness of breath
  • Excessive tiredness Significant sweating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Vision changes

Lifestyle changes may help control your blood pressure:
 
  • Lose weight if you are overweight. Excess weight adds to strain on the heart. In some cases, weight loss may be the only treatment needed.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Eat a healthy diet. Eat less fat and sodium. Salt, MSG, and baking soda all contain sodium. Eat more fruits, vegetables, and fiber.
  • Avoid smoking.
  • If you have diabetes, keep your blood sugar under control.
  • Follow your health care provider’s recommendations to modify, treat, or control possible causes of secondary hypertension.

I was suffering from Chronic Glomerular Nephritis for 4 years. The albumin in urine was 3+. The creatinine level was fluctuating between 5 and 10. The blood urea was fluctuating between 50 and 80. I was loosing flesh day by day and became weak. I consulted many Urologists. I was given steroids and was finally asked to go on dialysis. Seeing the experience of my other friends who had similar problems, I was reluctant to go for it. In the meantime I decided to try Dr. Harshad Raval MD Homeopathic treatment. With his treatment, the creatinine and urea levels came down drastically. The albumin is now in traces. Creatinine level is 1.9. Blood urea is below 20. All this happened without steroids. The Hb level which had gone down to 6.7% has now reached above 11%. I am feeling much better. The edema on the body has considerably reduced. I don't look pale as before. I feel much energetic and able to work long hours in teaching profession. I am really thankful to DrRaval remedial approach to kidney problems.

I used to have thick and silky hair. Two years back during winter, my hair suddenly started falling in bunches leaving round patches on my scalp. I consulted Dermatologist who diagnosed it to be Alopicia Areata. Application of ointments, subcutaneous injections did not give a permanent hair and the round spots became bigger and bigger. After following Dr. Harshad Raval MD[Hom] treatment, initially very thin golden hair started developing in the bald area. These hair became darker over time. I am growing new hair in other areas too which is giving a richer look. It was a wonderful experience!
