Therefore, the blood pressure will rise. Do you know that high blood pressure is a quite dangerous? Except the symptoms, it also can cause further kidney damage. Can hemodialysis treat high blood pressure caused by kidney failure?

In general, there are 80%-85% kidney failure patients accompanied by high blood pressure, and most of them will recover to normal after several weeks or several months treatment. However, 5%-10% patients of them also have permanent hypertension. And most of the high blood pressure of the patients with uremia are caused by increased body fluid (water-sodium retention). For the high blood pressure caused by water sodium retention, hemodialysis can lower it through eliminating the excess sodium and water.
