High blood pressure or hypertension is one of common diseases among people, and it is also a leading factor to cause kidney disease. Therefore, it is very essential to well control our blood pressure. Well then, how to control blood pressure within a normal range for hypertensive nephropathy patients?
Hypertensive Nephropathy refers to a secondary kidney disease due to at least 5 to 10 years history of high blood pressure. If left untreated, high blood pressure will cause further kidney damage and affect overall health. And it will induce numerous symptoms and complications like heart disease, metabolic disorders, memory problems and so on. Thereby, well controlling of blood pressure is very vital to stop or delay the progression of illness condition.
To guide the patients correctly, nephrologist in our Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, China provides the several home remedies in the following contents.
Hypertensive kidney disease patients should eat food which contain more calcium and potassium, such as lettuce, yoghurt, potatoes, eggplant, kelp and so on. Eating high potassium food is helpful for discharging sodium and softening blood vessels which are good for lowering high blood pressure.
Patients should avoid eating the meat soup, because meat soup contains nitrogen which can promote generation of uric acid, thus increasing burden of liver, heart and kidneys.
Patients are required to limit intake of sodium. Proper decreased sodium intake contributes to lower blood pressure and reduce the water retention in the body.
Patients should limit intake of fat. When they are cooking, they should choose the plant oil and they can eat more marine fish. Marine fish contains a large amount of unsaturated fattyacid which is good for kidney health. It also can prevent thrombus and stroke. It also contains linoleic acid which increase the flexibility of capillaries and prevent rupture of blood vessels.
Proper protein intake is recommended to hypetensive kidney disease patients. The recommended protein intake is 1g/day per kilogram of body weight. Eating fish protein twice a week can improve the permeability and flexibility of blood vessels and increase the excretion of sodium. However, if patients with insufficient renal function, patients should limit intake of protein.
Through the above analysis, we believe that you have a well understanding about how to control blood pressure with hypertensive renal disease. Sincerely we hope you can live a healthy and happy life.
