Can Cysts on Kidneys Cause High Blood PressureSome people with kidney cysts often have high blood pressure. Can cysts on kidneys cause high blood pressure? Simple kidney cysts usually do not cause symptoms or harm the kidneys, so here we only discuss about polycystic kidney disease (PKD).

Causes of high blood pressure for kidney cyst patients

When arteries in the body (including in the kidneys) become constricted, due to the hyperactivity of their smooth muscle, cyst growth in the kidneys, or due to inflammation or the buildup of plaque, there is less of a channel through which blood can travel to the systems of the body, which needs the vital nutrients, and oxygen it gets via the vascular system. Naturally, when these channels are reduced in size, (the body’s organs continue to require nutrients and oxygen) the body raises its blood pressure, in order to maintain adequate levels of blood flow to the systems of the body that would otherwise become starved.

Besides, the cyst growth can cause kidney damage so that the kidneys are not able to regulate the blood pressure, leading to high blood pressure.

Treatment of high blood pressure for PKD patients

High blood pressure can cause direct damage to kidneys, which in turn raises blood pressure further. It can also increase your risk of cardiovascular disease to threaten your life. Therefore, it is necessary for you to bring down hypertension as early as possible.

In people with ADPKD, the recommended or ‘target’ blood pressure is generally 130/80 mmHg or less. However, if you lose large amounts of protein in your urine (proteinuria), you will usually be advised to aim for a blood pressure of 120/75 mmHg or less. Here are some ways to help you control blood pressure.

-To reduce salt intake

-To cut down on alcohol

-To give up smoking

-To take exercises regularly

-To lose excess weight

-To take medications such as ACEI or ARBs or Calcium-Channel Blockers, Diuretics, etc.
