How to Lower High Blood Pressure in Alport Syndrome

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2012-12-15 15:55

Alport syndrome is a genetic disorder involving kidneys, eye and ear. High blood pressure is one of manifestation of kidney damage.

High blood pressure usually occurs by the time the patients are teenagers. It is a significant risk factor in worsening kidney function. Therefore, it is very important to lower high blood pressure in alport syndrome.

Firstly, how does high blood pressure occur?

Alport Syndrome causes damage to the kidneys by the progressive formation of scar tissues in kidney structure including glomeruli and renal tubules. This process is known as fibrosis and it eventually leads to kidney failure.

When the kidneys are damaged, they will fail to remove fluids from body normally as before. As a result, high levels of fluids will build up in body. Increased blood volume is attributed to high blood pressure in alport syndrome.

Additionally, healthy kidneys can produce renin which can regulate the levels of blood pressure. When kidney tissues are scarred, less blood and oxygen will be supplied to kidneys, which can stimulate renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, thus elevating blood pressure.

How to lower high blood pressure in alport syndrome?

Based on the causes of high blood pressure in alport syndrome, the treatment goal should be eliminating the retention of fluids in body and restoring the impaired kidney structure and stop the fibrosis process.

The conventional therapies for high blood pressure in alport syndrome mainly include controlling the intake of fluids and sodium and use of diuretic. However, these treatment measures only can relieve high blood pressure, but can not control it fundamentally.

To control high blood pressure in alport syndrome completely and fundamentally, the therapy should be able to restoring the scarred kidney structure and stopping the fibrosis process.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an alternative for the treatment of alport syndrome. Although this therapy can not cure the disease, it can stop the disease progression and improve renal function significantly.
