Is Having a High Blood Pressure a Sign of Kidney FailureHigh blood pressure (Hypertension) is a very common complication of Kidney Failure, but is not the definite sign of Kidney Failure. I would like to give you more information related the causes, symptoms and treatment for Kidney Failure. Any questions, please consult our doctor online directly.

Causes of Kidney Failure

Kidney Failure is not an independent disease, but an end stage of Chronic Kidney Disease, when the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) decreases below 15 ml/min. Kidney Failure is characterized by a group of symptoms.

Symptoms of Kidney Failure

-Swelling (Edema) occurring in hands, legs and ankle


-Protein in urine (Proteinuria)

-Blood in urine (Hematuria)

-Reduction of urine output

-Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea

-Breathing problems

-Sleep disorder

There are also some other symptoms since Kidney Failure may attack many other organs and system. High blood pressure is one of the common complications in Kidney Failure. It can be related to large amount of protein leakage, water-sodium retention or over-secretion of renin due to damaged kidney function.

Treatment for Kidney Failure

-Dialysis: Dialysis is a way to remove wastes and extra fluid in the blood, so it is called “artificial kidney”. Therefore, it is helpful for controlling high blood pressure. But it cannot restore normal kidney function, so dialysis cannot stop the kidneys secreting more renins.

-Hot Compress Therapy: We add traditional Chinese herbs into the compression bags. The ingredients of Chinese medicines can expand blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes. As a result, blood circulation speeds up and kidneys can get enough oxygen to repair damaged renal tissues, so that kidney function can be improved. Therefore, all symptoms caused by decreased kidney function can be completely relieved.
