target of a high blood pressure: the renal complication
Medical articles show that
90% of the subjects with a renal insufficiency had a history of high
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
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.
