High blood pressure is very common among dialysis patients. Are you troubled by it? Do you know how to lower high blood pressure? Go on reading to learn more information.

The most important thing you should do is to limit sodium intake strictly and control water intake. Besides, you should explore the suitable dry weight. If these measures can not help you control blood pressure well, you should take medications to lower blood pressure.

-Diuretics or water pills. They can decrease blood pressure. But if your creatinine level is high, they are usually useless. Moreover, they have ototoxicity. Therefore, it is not advisable for dialysis patients who do not produce urine.

-ACEI. Except fosinopril, other types of ACEI can be eliminated from the blood during dialysis, so after dialysis, you should take them again.

-ARB. Dialysis can not clear it, so it is unnecessary for you to supplement it after dialysis.

All in all, ACEI or ARBs are suggested to take. They do not only lower blood pressure, but also protect heart from being damaged.

-Mineralcorticoid recept antagonist. It can not be applied to dialysis patients with less urine, which can reduce cardiovascular damage and reduce the chance of hyperkalemia.

-β blocker. They are easily to be cleared during dialysis. And they can increase your risk of hyperkalemia. Therefore, attention should be paid.

-Calcium Channel Blocker (CCB). It can not be cleared during dialysis. And it is usually used together with other hypertensive medications to lower blood pressure. Besides, it can protect your heart.

What to do if your hypertension can not be lowered with the above medications?

You can try Clonidine, which is helpful for refractory high blood pressure. If combined medications are not helpful, you can try Minoxidil or Hydralazine. But attention. They are taken before going to bed.
