Can A Kidney Cyst Cause High Blood Pressure

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-01-15 03:09

Can A Kidney Cyst Cause High Blood PressureKidney cyst is sac filled with fluid. Under normal circumstances, they are benign and won’t cause any symptoms. But if they enlarge, many symptoms occur. Can it cause high blood pressure? In the following, you may find the answer.

How can a kidney cyst cause high blood pressure?

One of the kidney functions is to excrete renin and prostaglandin to regulate blood pressure. If there are cysts on the kidneys, with time going, they will become bigger and bigger so that they will oppress the tissues around, leading to less blood supply. This will stimulate more excretion of renin, resulting in high blood pressure.

How to treat high blood pressure caused by kidney cysts?


Medicines, such as ACE inhibitors and ARBs, are often prescribed to control blood pressure. They can inhibit angiotensin-converting enzyme, thereby decreasing the tension of blood vessels and blood volume, thus lowering blood pressure. However, long time use may cause side effects, for example, headache and dry cough.

-Remove the kidney cysts

The basic way to treat high blood pressure is to remove the kidney cysts. The two common ways are to puncture the cyst with a needle or surgery.

But in China, we often use Chinese herbs, such as rhizoma sparganic, pericarpium citri reticulatae, to shrink these cysts. There are both oral Chinese medicine and external application medicine. Some of them can increase cyst wall permeability so that the fluid can flow out, some of them can restrict fluid to generate, and some of them can clean away the fluid. The more detailed information, you can talk with our online doctors.

High blood pressure can further damage your kidney, so you can not treat it lightly. And when you find there are kidney cysts, attention should be paid to their growth, preventing the occurrence of symptoms.
