High blood pressure is the #2 cause of kidney failure. It accounts for about one-fourth of all cases. High blood pressure can be both a cause of kidney disease and a symptom of kidney disease. When high blood pressure damages your kidneys, they are not able to do all their jobs as well—and one of their jobs is helping your body regulate your blood pressure.

What is high blood pressure?

Your heart pumps your blood through your body using tubes called arteries and veins. When the blood moves through your arteries and veins, it makes pressure inside of the tubes. This is called blood pressure. Checking your blood pressure tells your doctor how hard your heart is working to pump your blood.
Blood pressure that is too high (hypertension) means your heart is working too hard to pump your blood. This can harm your body, including your kidneys. High blood pressure can cause kidney disease and kidney failure. Kidney disease can also cause high blood pressure.

How does high blood pressure cause kidney disease?

Your kidneys are made of tiny blood vessels, called glomeruli, which clean your blood. When you have high blood pressure, the blood flows through these blood vessels very forcefully. This can harm these blood vessels and cause kidney disease.
You will not be able to feel if high blood pressure has hurt your kidneys. The only way to know is to be tested.

How can I prevent kidney disease caused by high blood pressure?

It can take many years for high blood pressure to damage your kidneys. You can take steps to control your blood pressure and prevent kidney disease. If you already have kidney disease, controlling your blood pressure can help prevent more damage to your kidneys.

To prevent kidney disease or keep kidney damage from getting worse, you should:

  • Control your blood pressure
  • Follow a heart-healthy diet
  • Control your blood sugar if you have diabetes
  • Do not smoke or use tobacco
  • Limit alcohol
  • Keep a healthy weight
  • Exercise most days of the week

Follow a heart-healthy diet
What you eat and drink can affect your blood pressure. Choose foods that are low in salt (sodium) and fat to help keep your blood pressure in a healthy range. Use these tips to get started:
Limit salt
  • Do not add salt to your food when cooking or eating. Try cooking with fresh herbs, lemon juice or spices.
  • Choose fresh or frozen vegetables instead of canned. If you do use canned vegetables, rinse them with water before eating or cooking them. This helps to remove extra salt.
  • Shop for items that say “reduced-sodium” or “low-sodium.” If you have kidney disease, make sure to check that these items do not contain potassium as a salt-substitute.
  • Avoid processed foods, such as frozen dinners and lunch meats.
  • Limit fast food and salty snacks, such as chips, pretzels and salted nuts.
  • Limit foods that are pickled or preserved, such as pickles and olives.
Limit fat
  • Choose lean meats or fish. Remove the skin and trim the fat off of your meats before you cook them.
  • Bake, grill or broil your foods instead of frying them.
  • Shop for fat-free or low-fat dairy products, salad dressing, and mayonnaise.
  • Try olive or canola oil instead of vegetable oil.
  • Choose egg whites or egg substitute instead of whole eggs.
