Abstract

ABSTRACT: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and hypertension are intrinsically linked. Although 59% of the US population will be diagnosed with CKD during their lifetimes, mortality is usually due to a cardiovascular event. Sodium restriction and a combination of a renin-angiotensin-aldosterone medication and a calcium channel blocker are the most effective methods of managing hypertension in patients with CKD.
