ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) is a progessive deterioration in kidney function that ultimately requires dialysis to filter the and maintain normal electrolytes and to rid the body of fluid. The dialysis machine replaces the kidneys
The most common cause of renal failure is essential hypertension which damages the tissues of the kidney and ultimately cause them to fail. Sometimes, after the kidneys fail, they continue to produce an agent that causes the blood pressure to be elevated.
This is one of the surgically correctable causes of high blood pressure in renal failure patients. Diagnosis of this condition is made by drawing blood samples to check for the presence of this agent. thanks and good luck
