Chronic Renal Failure and Hypertension:

-Hypertension is one of the most common complications of CKD.

-The absence of hypertension may signify the presence of a salt-wasting form of renal disease, the effect of antihypertensive therapy, or volume depletion or may signify poor left ventricular function.

-In contrast to the general population, it is possible that in late-stage CKD, low blood pressure, reduced body mass index, and hypolipidemia indicate the presence of an advanced malnutrition-inflammation state, with poor prognosis.
