Hypertension is very common in clinical practice, most are primary hypertension, is a cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Renal disease caused by high blood pressure for renal hypertension, is a secondary hypertension category, accounting for about 5% to 8% of hypertension. This ratio is relatively large. For hypertensive patients, people tend to pay attention only to hypertension itself, and easy to ignore the hidden reasons for hypertension. Due to the lack of adequate attention to renal hypertension, renal hypertension caused by misdiagnosed as primary hypertension cases are rare.
Urinary tract infection (mainly chronic pyelonephritis) is one of the common causes of renal hypertension. According to statistics, chronic pyelonephritis associated with hypertension accounted for 14%. Renal hypertension in patients with moderate to moderate blood pressure, but there are a few can develop severe hypertension. This type of patients have a long history of repeated urinary tract infection, purulent urine and bacteriuria. If the patient has obvious bladder irritation symptoms, hematuria or pyuria, but the sterile urine, you should pay attention to the possibility of suffering from tuberculosis.
Chronic pyelonephritis recurrent, and ultimately lead to renal insufficiency, accompanied by the probability of hypertension increased significantly. It can also be said that chronic pyelonephritis associated with hypertension when the disease may be more likely to involve the kidney parenchyma, this time to be vigilant.
Urinary tract infection and high blood pressure are closely related, the occurrence of urinary tract infection may lead to high blood pressure, so patients must pay attention.
