Chronic kidney disease CKD is an increasingly prevalent condition globally and is strongly associated with incident cardiovascular disease CVD. Control of hypertension is important in those with CKD as it leads to slowing of disease progression as well as reduced CVD risk. Existing guidelines do not offer a consensus on optimal blood pressure BP targets.
With chronic kidney disease CKD , kidneys become damaged over time or cannot clean the blood as well as healthy kidneys. Diabetes and high blood pressure are the major causes of CKD in adults. Other risk factors include heart disease, obesity, a family history of CKD, past damage to the kidneys, and older age. Keep kidneys healthy by managing blood sugar and blood pressure.
Chronic Kidney Disease
With chronic kidney disease CKD , kidneys become damaged over time or cannot clean the blood as well as healthy kidneys.
Diabetes and high blood pressure are the major causes of CKD in adults. Other risk factors include heart disease, obesity, a family history of CKD, past damage to the kidneys, and older age.
Keep kidneys healthy by managing blood sugar and blood pressure. If kidney damage is severe and kidney function is very low, dialysis or a kidney transplant is needed for survival. Kidney failure treated with dialysis or a kidney transplant is called end-stage kidney disease ESKD. Treatment may slow the decline in kidney function and delay kidney failure. People with diabetes, high blood pressure, or CKD should talk to their doctor about how to protect their kidneys.
These estimates were based on a single measure of albuminuria or serum creatinine; they do not account for persistence of albuminuria or creatinine as indicated by the Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes recommendations. Thus, CKD in this report might be overestimated. The number of adults with CKD stages 1—4 was estimated by applying the overall percentage to the US Census population.

Other Health Problems As CKD worsens over time related health problems become more likely, including: Anemia or low red blood cell count can cause fatigue and weakness. Low calcium levels and high phosphorus levels in the blood can cause bone problems. High potassium levels in the blood can cause an irregular or abnormal heartbeat.
Loss of appetite or nausea. Extra fluid in the body can cause high blood pressure, swelling in the legs, or shortness of breath. Infections or a weakened immune system.
Kidney Failure If kidney damage is severe and kidney function is very low, dialysis or a kidney transplant is needed for survival. Every day, more than people on dialysis die. In US children and adolescents younger than 18 years, polycystic kidney disease and glomerulonephritis inflammation of the kidneys are the main causes of ESKD. Learn about CKD from their kidney doctor nephrologist to better understand treatment and protect their kidneys.
People with nephritis, polycystic kidney disease a cause of CKD and kidney failure , or other kidney disease should talk about specific treatment options with their kidney doctor. Manage blood sugar and blood pressure. Manage CKD: Make lifestyle changes e.
Meet with a dietitian to create a kidney-healthy eating plan that is low in salt and fat and has the right amount of protein. As CKD gets worse, the plan may also include limiting phosphorus and potassium. Use medicines e. Stop smoking. Avoid conditions or exposures that can harm the kidneys or cause kidney function to suddenly get worse: Certain medicines: Over-the-counter pain medicines like ibuprofen and naproxen.
Some antibiotics. Proton pump inhibitors used to reduce stomach acid, such as omeprazole and lansoprazole. Herbal supplements always talk to your doctor before taking any supplements. Certain dyes contrast agents used to make blood vessels or organs visible on X-rays or other imaging tests. Kidney infections preventing bladder infections may help.

Hypertension in Chronic Kidney Disease: Navigating the Evidence
Tedla, A. Brar, R. Browne, C. Hypertension is both an important cause and consequence of chronic kidney disease. Evidence from numerous clinical trials has demonstrated the benefit of blood pressure control. However, it remains unclear whether available results could be extrapolated to patients with chronic kidney diseases because most studies on hypertension have excluded patients with kidney failure.
Unlike the majority of patients with uncomplicated hypertension in whom minimal renal damage develops in the absence of severe blood pressure (BP).
Current Strategies for Management of Hypertensive Renal Disease
Metrics details. High blood pressure is the most significant risk factor for the development and progression of chronic kidney disease CKD. Lowering blood pressure is a goal to prevent CKD progression. This study of adults with CKD who have hypertension aimed to determine blood pressure control rates and the treatment patterns of hypertension and to explore factors associated with control of hypertension.
Annual incidence rates for end-stage renal disease, adjusted for age, race, and sex, to Annual incidence rate for end-stage renal disease by renal diagnosis, adjusted for age, race, and sex, to DM indicates diabetes mellitus; HTN, hypertension.
Chronic kidney disease CKD is defined as persistent kidney damage accompanied by a reduction in the glomerular filtration rate GFR and the presence of albuminuria. The rise in incidence of CKD is attributed to an aging populace and increases in hypertension HTN , diabetes, and obesity within the U. CKD is associated with a host of complications including electrolyte imbalances, mineral and bone disorders, anemia, dyslipidemia, and HTN.
