Hypertensive Nephropathy is caused by long-term high blood pressure. If you have high blood pressure for more than 5 years, you are at a high risk of hypertensive nephropathy. The followings are the symptoms of hypertensive nephropathy. You can take a reference.

Why would high blood pressure cause hypertensive nephropathy?

Kidney is a filtering organ that functions as filtering the waste product and toxins and meanwhile, prevent protein and blood cells leaking out from blood vessel. High blood pressure can increase the pressure of the blood to blood vessel thus protein can leak out, causing damage to the filtering system.

The incidence of hypertensive nephropathy is closely related with the severe degree of high blood pressure and its duration.

The symptoms of hypertensive nephropathy.

For those who have high blood pressure for many years, the damage to kidney tubules occurs earlier than glomerular, featuring as increased night urination due to the decline of the concentration function of urine.

The damage to glomerular manifests as protein in urine. It is often mild or moderate protein and the 24 hours urinary protein quantitative is generally less than 2 grams. But a few patients will have high level of protein in urine.

Some patients may occur swelling in eyelid and the lower libs. Some may experience heavy swelling spread to the whole body.

A few patients may suffer from transient macroscopic haematuria due to the rupture of glomerular capillary.

The creatinine level and blood urea nitrogen level will be elevated because of glomerular damage.
