Why Blood Pressure Matters for People with PKD

Basic Anatomy

The Cardiovascular System

Blood Pressure

So What?

  1. Cardiovascular abnormalities in autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease. Tevfik Ecder · Robert W. Schrier. Nature Reviews Nephrology. 2009.
  2. Different organizations have different standards for what is considered hypertension. For our purposes, focusing on getting blood pressure in the healthy range is so crucial that I consider anything above 120/80 hypertension.
  3. Don’t worry about what all these complications mean at the moment. Your doctor can help you understand your risk of developing these if you’d like to know more.
