Hypertension and kidney disease

The same goes for the kidneys. Because kidney health and high blood pressure are mutually dependent. On the one hand, kidney disease can be the cause of high blood pressure and, on the other hand high, blood pressure is the most significant factor in chronic kidney failure. Early detection of kidney disease is therefore important for people with high blood pressure. With the help of a simple blood and urine test, your doctor can see how well the kidneys are functioning. A urine test for protein excretion should be carried out annually for risk groups such as diabetics and hypertension patients. A change in lifestyle can also support your kidneys.

Our recommendation: exercise regularly, do not smoke, reduce weight and change your diet to calorie and fat-reduced foods. The so-called Mediterranean cuisine has proven its worth: lots of fruit and vegetables, a little meat, and lots of fish and vegetable fats.
