If the high blood pressure can not be controlled well, it will cause the failure of renal function, finally cause that the life quantity of patients reduce. Therefore, starting from this angle, we should control the blood pressure first if want to avoid the damage of kidney disease.

  Whats we should focus on is that the kidney disease can cause hypertension. But how high is the probability? It does not have the exact standard to say the specific probability. Why? Because it has relation with high blood pressure and the process, so id the blood pressure is very high, the probability is high, and if the blood pressure can not be controlled well, the chance of kidney disease is also big.
