About Hypertensive Nephropathy

Persistent high blood pressure can lead to kidney damage which is Hypertensive Nephropathy. This is a common form of renal disease and is a frequent cause of damage so severe that some patients require dialysis to maintain their life. Hypertensive Nephropathy contains two types, say benign nephrosclerosis and malignant nephrosclerosis.
People have kidney disease caused by high blood pressure usually have the following several symptoms: edema, massive proteinuria, hypoproteinemia and hyperlipemia. Moreover, among these symptoms, edema always appears firstly and in serious cases, people may have hydrothorax, ascites, much of which can cause hard breath, exomphalos and inguinal hernia. In addition, serious edema always is associated with high blood pressure, reduced urination and mild azotemia.
Since short-term high blood pressure can not cause damages on our kidneys, so people with Hypertensive Nephropathy usually already have high blood pressure for more than five to ten years. In the early stage of renal damage, people may just have frequent urination and then foamy urine which shows there are large amount of protein in the urine. In some cases, people have red urine caused by fracture of blood capillary. With low progress, Hypertensive Nephropathy rarely develops into renal failure. Therefore, as long as people receive effective treatment, they can live a full life as before.
People suffering from kidney disease caused by high blood pressure should have a healthy dietary arrangement under the direction of their doctors. They should avoid eating salty foods which will increase their blood pressure. Usually, six grams of salt a day is enough. Try to ingest right amount of protein and meanwhile, about sixty percent of the protein should be high-quality protein which mainly exists in lean meat, egg white and marine products. In addition, the specific volume of protein for people suffering from kidney disease depends on their illness condition. In general, if there are no obvious renal damages, then they should ingest about fifty grams a day. However, if there is obvious increase about creatinine(High Creatinine Levels) and urea nitrogen, then the intake of protein should be decrease to twenty to forty grams a day.
