When it comes to hypertension, many people are unable to associate it with chronic nephritis. But in fact, chronic nephritis patients will encounter a problem, that is, elevated blood pressure. What is the reason for this?
The kidney is the main organ of metabolism of water and sodium. Chronic nephritis damages the kidney tissue and affects the renal function. The excretion of water and sodium is impeded, which leads to the retention of water and sodium. This phenomenon can lead to an increase in blood volume, which increases blood pressure. Secondly, due to renal ischemia, renal vascular tension caused by the change of renin secretion, the renin angiotensin aldosterone and promote the role of vasopressin secretion, leading to the distal tubule absorb water and sodium increased, this situation will lead to increased blood pressure.
Secondary hypertension caused by chronic nephritis is different from essential hypertension in the elderly. As long as the nephritis is well controlled, blood pressure can be maintained normally. Early detection of disease can be treated in time and restored later. Many patients, however, have developed kidney failure or even uremia when they seek medical treatment because they fail to detect nephritis early."
In the diet, nephritis patients to avoid high protein diet, eat more vitamin C rich fresh fruit and natural food. When feeling unwell, such as emergence of nocturnal enuresis, loss of appetite, waist discomfort or soreness, especially after the morning eyelid face, ankle edema and abnormal urination, suggesting that kidney disease may have. In the presence of these symptoms, we must go to the hospital for examination in order to diagnose and treat it as soon as possible.
