High blood pressure in nephrotic syndrome
Kidneys are significant organs in our body. They can not only filter waste products, extra fluids and toxins out of the body, but also release a hormone known as renin, which can be used to regulate blood pressure.
In nephrotic syndrome, the filtering units known as glomeruli are impaired. As a result, extra water and sodium will build up in the body, resulting water-sodium retention. Therefore, hypertension occurs.
In addition, due to kidney damage, more renin will be released, and study show that this phenomenon may constrict the blood vessels and increase blood pressure.
