Hypertensive nephrosclerosis is a kidney disease, while what on earth is hypertensive nephrosclerosis?
Nephrosclerosis can be caused by two major reasons. One is renal atherosclerosis, and the other is hypertension. As we know, hypertension is a common disease, and patient’s nephrosclerosis is more likely to be caused by this reason.
How does hypertension cause nephrosclerosis?
Our blood vessels have contractility, so they can regulate the blood flow volume and blood circulation. But for patients who have high blood pressure, that will expand patient’s blood vessel continuously, which can damage blood vessel’s contractility, and cause mechanical injury to blood vessel, and that will cause the accumulation of blood fat in vascular wall. So plaque in blood vessel may appear, which can cause angiosclerosis.
While when the blood vessels in kidney are damaged by high blood pressure, the angiosclerosis will appear in patient’s kidney, and that can lead to nephrosclerosis.
What symptoms will be caused by hypertensive nephrosclerosis?
For patient with hypertension nephrosclerosis, he can have many obvious symptoms.
As we know, hypertension is a dangerous disease, and it can cause patient to have some obvious symptoms. In the early stage of high blood pressure, patient can have high weight, dizziness, headache, palpitation, shortness of breath, etc. And for patient who is in the late stage of high blood pressure, his will have symptoms like headache, hypertensive encephalopathy, visual impairment, etc.
On the other hand, nephrosclerosis can also cause many symptoms to patient, like edema, back pain, blood urine, foamy urine, frequent urine at night, etc. And as the progression of patient’s kidney disease, patient can have kidney failure, which can cause much more symptoms to patient.
