Hypertensive Patients Have These 4 Symptoms, Beware of Kidney Disease
Hypertension, in fact itself is not terrible, but its complications may threaten your life!

Hypertension and kidney disease are often inseparable, and the two often occur together. Hypertension can directly cause kidney damage, namely the so-called Hypertensive Nephropathy. Long-term hypertension leads to hyaline degeneration of renal arterioles, which leads to renal ischemia, hypoxia, fibrosis, sclerosis and necrosis, and further leads to renal insufficiency, which eventually leads to renal failure or uremia.

Many people do not know the symptoms of hypertensive kidney disease well, so they can not pay enough attention. Once the disease develops to renal failure, everything is to late. So what are the symptoms of chronic kidney disease in people with high blood pressure?

1. Eyelid or lower limb edema appears when getting up in the morning.

2. Hypertension becomes unmanageable.

3. Poor appetite, nausea, vomiting, anemia, weakness, back pain, fatigue

4. Patients under 40 years old with hypertension, or with diabetes, coronary heart disease, hyperlipidemia, hyperuricemia and gout, have edema, foamy urine, frequent urination at night, family history of kidney disease.

Once Hypertensive Nephropathy occurs, what apparent symptoms do you have?

1. Massive proteinuria

Massive proteinuria mainly refers to 24-hour urine protein quantification exceeding 3.5g, which is characterized by ++ ~ ++++, and at this time it is mostly selective proteinuria.

2. Severe edema

Edema is often the first symptom, which usually appears in whole body. When you press the body, there is pitting. In severe case, hydrothorax and ascites may occur. They can cause breathing difficulties, umbilical hernia or inguinal hernia. Heavy edema usually goes together with oliguria, hypertension, and mild azotemia.

3. Hyperlipidemia

Blood cholesterol, triglycerides, etc. significantly increase.

4. Hypoalbuminemia

Plasma protein decreases, serum albumin <30g/L, less than 10g/L in severe cases.

If you have high blood pressure for years, beware of the above four symptoms. They indicate that your kidneys are damaged. The earlier you detect the disease, the earlier you start treatment, and the better your prognosis.
