The kidneys are vital in the pathogenesis of hypertension and are also pathologically affected by the presence of hypertension. The prevalence of hypertension in chronic kidney disease (CKD) depends on age, the severity of renal failure, and proteinuria. The intricate and inextricable relationship between CKD and hypertension seems to cause cardiovascular disease that has assumed epidemic proportions. This article discusses the etiology and treatment of hypertension in CKD so that it can be better controlled.
