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.
