Hypertension, on its own, is the second most common cause of End Stage Renal Disease, next to diabetes. Many people with this disorder often wonder that whether Hypertensive Kidney Disease is hereditary or not. They are afraid that they may pass this disease to their children. Read on to find answer in the following introduction.
What is Hypertensive Nephropathy?
Blood pressure measures the force of blood against the walls of the blood vessels. Increased blood pressure may occur due to too much fluid in normal blood vessels or fluid in narrow, stiff, or clogged blood vessels.
Hypertension makes the heart work harder and, over time, can damage blood vessels all over the body. If the blood vessels in the kidneys are impaired, they may fail work normally to remove waste products and excess water from the body. The extra fluid in the blood vessels may then raise blood pressure even more. It’s a dangerous cycle.
Is Hypertensive Kidney Disease hereditary?
Firstly, hypertensive renal disease is a kind of disease caused by the sclerosis of arteriolae. So it is not an infectious condition. Normal people will not get this disease after they contact with patients with the disease.
Secondly, generally, patients with Hypertensive Kidney Disease have family history of high blood pressure. Without effective treatment for hypertension, patients with 5-10 years of hypertension may develop high blood pressure and Kidney Disease.
From the above analysis, we can know that Hypertensive Kidney Disease is not hereditary. Patients do not need to worry about this problem. They need to pay most attention to adopt prompt treatment.
In China, we apply an integrated Chinese-western medicine therapy known as Immunotherapy to treat Hypertensive Kidney Disease by repairing the kidney damage and regulating the immune system. Under this treatment, patients can get rid of the relapse of this disorder and enjoy a normal life.
