Kidney Hypertension

HI, what can cause kidney hypertension ? How can be treat it ? Its a dangerous condition ?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Kidney hypertension is referred to an increase in systemic blood pressure levels secondary to kidney disorders like renal artery stenosis. Here there is diminished blood supply to the kidneys due to the narrowing of the renal arteries. So, the kidneys secrete hormones, which increase the blood pressure. So, therapy is focused on maintaining systemic pressures and if needed surgery for the stenosis.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
