HPB caused by kidney stones?

Edited , 4 users are following.


I am 24 years old an I constantly have 150/100 blood pressure. I went to the doctor and said nothing is wrong with my heart or anything else. She gave me some pills and they indeed lower my BP. But my parents dont have HPB neither my siblings. I have like 6 small kidney stones in my left kidney (2mm-6mm) and some in my right kidney. Can these be a cause of my HPB? I am thinking that my kidney doesn't work properly due to the kidney stones. I also have serum creatinine 1.21 .

Thank you.

    Nobody is all that sure what really causes high blood pressure, only that it co-occurs with different things, including age, and weight, and maybe chronic high cholesterol. They know what causes arterial blockage, kind of, but that's not necessarily the same thing.

    But it might be that kidney function generally could affect BP. So could pain, including from kidney stones, or stress.

    Can also be caused by diet, look up "cheese effect", in case you also take turmeric or even eat a lot of it in Indian food one day, and then a lot of meat and sausage and stuff the next day.

      Thank you for your response. The fact is that I am not overweight and I don't have kidney pain. I think that i am too young to have HPB and i am looking to what caused this.

    Are you in the UK. ?

    BP can effect the kidneys and the kidneys can effect BP. For that reason specialist hypertension centres are in the kidney units at major UK hospitals. They will do a range of tests that cardiologists don't in my case I had head and kidney MRI scans and tests on 24 hour urine collections. As my consultant said cardiologists are very clever people and do things I cannot do but they don't understand blood pressure as I do. To get referred to one your BP usually needs to be constantly over 170.

    Stress or drug use are next on the list when the usual suspects have been ruled out
