This Is How Kidney and Heart Problems Are Related!!!

Blood Pressure

Blood pressure is written as two numbers separated by a slash. A doctor will say a blood pressure reading of 120/80 as “120 over 80.” The top number represents the force of blood pressing against the blood vessel walls when the heart is contracting. The bottom number represents the pressure when the heart is at rest between contractions. You should keep your blood pressure below 140/90 unless your doctor sets a different goal. Controlling your blood pressure can help protect your heart and kidneys.

High BP can cause Kidney and Heart problems

High Blood Pressure – A Foe to Kidney and Heart 

Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your blood vessels. With high blood pressure, your heart works harder to pump blood, which can strain your heart. High blood pressure can damage your blood vessels. If high blood pressure damages the small blood vessels in your kidneys, your kidneys will not filter your blood as well as they should. 

High blood pressure is not only a cause of kidney problems but also heart problems. Damaged kidneys are unable to filter extra water and salt from your body – which in turn increases blood pressure. A dangerous cycle results as each disease makes the other worse.
