Enlarged renal cysts can cause various symptoms and complications. Is high blood pressure a sign of PKD? Follow us and you can find the answer.

Can Polycystic Kidney Disease cause high blood pressure?

High blood pressure is indeed a symptom of Polycystic Kidney Disease. As you know, this kind of kidney disease is characterized by a cluster of cysts on the kidneys. When the cysts grow to large size (more than 3-5cm), they begin to compress nearby tissues, stimulating the kidneys secrete more renin. As a result, renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) starts, leading to high blood pressure.

In addition, water-retention is another common factor that can also elevate the blood pressure.

Other symptoms of Polycystic Kidney Disease

Back pain, flank pain, abdominal pain, proteinuria, hematuria, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, frequent urination, kidney stone, or even cyst in brain and liver.

If you are diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease, you should take regular test to monitor the growth of cyst in case of rupture or getting infected.
