Causes of high blood pressure in people with kidney disease

Honestly speaking, high blood pressure and kidney disease can affect each other. And the causes of HBP are summarized as follows:

1.In right condition, kidneys are responsible for the adjustment of blood pressure by secreting certain hormones named renin and angiotensin. However, when kidneys are injured, they will not be able to work normally. In this way, high blood pressure occurs.

2.When extra fluid and sodium can not be excreted out of the body, these substances will accumulate in the body. And this abnormal sign is also related to the onset of hypertension.
