High Blood Pressure in Seniors, a Main Factor in Kidney Disease

a-1 home care home care torranceKidney disease, or renal failure, is usually the result of some other pre-existing health condition, such as liver failure, heart disease or heart attack, dehydration, severe allergic reaction, anti-inflammatory medications and high blood pressure (Healthline, 2016).  When an elderly person allows his blood pressure to escalate to uncontrollable levels, the pressure weakens, hardens and narrows the arteries so that there’s insufficient blood flow to the kidney tissues.  The resulting damage causes renal failure, which affects the way the body filters wastes through the bloodstream.  According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), about 10% of Americans have some form of chronic kidney disease (CKD).  To provide support for patients with CKD, A-1 Home Care offers high quality, low-cost in-home care services to families in Century City.
