Renal pressure – what it is like to lower at home

If kidney pressure has increased, symptoms and treatment are interconnected. It is the clinical manifestations that determine the further treatment regimen. In medicine, there are three forms of pathology that are associated with a violation of paired organs.

The parenchymal form occurs due to nephrogenic diseases, since the vascular wall of the renal parenchyma, renal glomeruli is damaged. The vasorenal form develops as a result of damage to the renal arteries; it is characterized by a deficiency in blood flow to organs. It happens congenital and acquired character.

The mixed form means a combination of harmful transformations in the soft tissues of the kidneys, combines violations of the two previous forms.

Why does kidney pressure rise? Deviation from the norm indicates diseases:

  • Vasculitis.
  • Chronic pyelonephritis.
  • Diabetic nephropathy.
  • Renal artery hypoplasia.
  • Abnormal aortic development.
  • Arterial stenosis.
  • Blockage of blood vessels by blood clots.
  • Polycystic.

Often, the diastolic rate increases due to fibromuscular dysplasia. This pathology is characterized by the irregular structure of the arteries of an innate nature.

Signs of k >Pressure due to the kidneys can significantly increase, and the systolic indicator is within normal limits. The relationship is simple – impaired renal function has led to a pathological condition. Symptoms are based on increased blood pressure and a specific disease of paired organs.

When the kidneys drop, blood pressure can increase, and the load on the liver increases. Patients have a strong pain in the abdomen, a deterioration in overall health. If the cause is pyelonephritis, then against the background of an increased upper and lower value, a painful urination process is observed. Sand in the kidneys provokes a rise in blood pressure.

In some men and women, a noncritical increase in lower blood pressure is asymptomatic, no negative signs are observed. With a sharp increase, clinical manifestations are revealed:

  1. Bleeding from the nose.
  2. Headache.
  3. The presence of blood in urine.
  4. Visual disturbance.
  5. Confusion of consciousness.

Additionally, there are signs characteristic of the lability of arterial parameters. These include weakness, slowdown, or increased heart rate, dizziness. In rare cases, intracranial pressure rises.

High pressure from the kidneys in medicine is divided into two forms, depending on the course – benign and malignant. In the first case, the symptoms are absent or mild, in the second – the pathology progresses rapidly.

Patients complain of pain in the lower part of the spine, an increase in the specific gravity of urine per day, temperature – increases periodically, rapid fatigue.

During pregnancy, pressure from the kidneys threatens the health of the mother and baby – a high risk of premature placental abruption.

Due to the fact that such patients do not have characteristic manifestations, there may be a suspicion of the presence of renal hypertension, when the patient’s blood pressure is constantly increased.

Moreover, this condition is noted even when treatment is carried out in which antihypertensive tablets and other drugs are used.

Diagnosis of increased diastolic pressure

With increased renal pressure, it is necessary to consult a therapist. The first thing a doctor should do is to measure systolic and diastolic pressure. If the pulse difference is less than 30 mm Hg, this allows you to suspect a violation of the kidneys. For example, a patient may have a pressure of 140 to 120, respectively, the difference is 20 mm.

To check suspicions, a number of diagnostic measures are prescribed. An MRI or CT scan of the kidneys helps to visually examine the vessels and paired organs. A biopsy gives an assessment of the condition at the cellular level. It allows to identify the degree of damage in any pathology.

Excretory urography is performed using contrasting components. They allow you to evaluate the size, shape and location of the kidneys. Additionally, the degree of influence of pathology on their condition is revealed.

Diagnostics includes events:

  • Ultrasound procedure. Finds signs of pyelonephritis, tumor neoplasms.
  • Doppleroangiography. Examination of arteries, elucidation of the structure of blood vessels: the thickness of the vascular wall, the speed of blood circulation.
  • Fundus examination. With an increase in diastolic value, retinal damage is often observed.

Be sure to study the biological fluid for renin. It is dominant in the diagnosis of the disease. Based on the results of the studies, the doctor will tell you how to reduce renal pressure.


The nephrogenic form of the disease leads to disruption of the kidneys, brain and cardiovascular system. Therapeutic measures that help with hypertension to regulate blood pressure do not give a result with this form.

In this case, priority is given to surgical intervention. Prescribing medications helps to normalize blood pressure. They are combined with basic therapy. To bring down blood pressure, take tablets from the groups: adrenergic blockers and thiazide diuretics.

Medications must be combined with a wellness diet. Patients are advised to limit or completely eliminate the consumption of table salt. Checking the degree of renal failure due to the clarification of the size of glomerular filtration.

If renal pathology is not amenable to drug therapy, it caused complications in the form of cyst formation and other disorders, balloon angioplasty is necessary. A special balloon with a catheter is used, which is inserted into the arteries, expanding them. This method prevents further narrowing.

In some cases, treatment of renal pressure is carried out through surgery:

  1. Severe form of stenosis.
  2. Overlapping arterial lumen.
  3. Insufficient angioplasty result

For the prevention of thrombosis and embolism after vascular surgery, Aspenorm is prescribed. Dosage is determined individually. Usually take 3-5 days, only as directed by the doctor.

It is not recommended to reduce renal pressure at home, since it is necessary to influence not the consequence – high blood pressure, but the primary source – kidney pathologies. Effective alternative methods applicable for hypertension do not help with nephrogenic arterial hypertension, respectively, they can not cure. Therefore, the use of medicinal herbs, millet, starvation, etc., will only aggravate the situation.

High probability of renal or heart failure, arteriosclerosis of blood vessels, lipid metabolism disorders, impaired blood flow in the brain, irreversible damage to arteries. Only after curing the “source” can you lower and stabilize blood pressure.

Reviews of doctors show that when seeking medical help at an early stage of the disease, the prognosis is favorable. The lack of timely treatment leads to complications, up to disability and death.
