It was proved that the more significant the level of blood pressure is the greater the risk to present a renal insufficiency becomes. Thus, a patient with high blood pressure has between 2 and 10 times more risk to develop a renal insufficiency compared to a subject who is not suffering from high blood pressure.

The doctor detects renal insufficiency by measuring the quantity of creatinine in the blood, which is high in renal insufficiency.

Of course, the best way to prevent this renal insufficiency is to control the high blood pressure for the best, because the more significant the level of blood pressure is, the more the renal function is degraded.

At a very advanced stage and after long years, a dialysis is required to cure the renal insufficiency, i.e. the presence of an artificial kidney.
