Does Kidney Cyst Cause High Blood PressureDoes kidney cyst cause high blood pressure? We know there is usually no obvious symptoms until the cysts are big enough and that may be the reason why patients have this doubt.

For this question, I can tell you kidney cyst can lead to high blood pressure, and high blood pressure is a common symptom in patients with kidney cysts and other kidney diseases.

Then why does kidney cyst induce high blood pressure?

High blood pressure in kidney disease can be caused by two factors: one is sodium and water retention, the other is increase of renin excretion. And high blood pressure in kidney cyst is chiefly caused by the second factor-the increase of renin excretion.

With the grow of kidney cysts, they will oppress patients’ kidneys, which causes the decrease of blood flow in patients’ kidneys. That will cause the increase of renin’s excretion. Also as the progression of patients’ conditions, they will also have sodium and water retention, which will worsen this symptom.

What is the treatment of high blood pressure in kidney cyst?

Medication treatment

For high blood pressure, patients can take some hypotensives such as ACE inhibitor and ARB. The medications can help ease high blood pressure quickly.


In western countries, when the cysts are larger than 3cm, the doctor always recommend surgery to get rid of the cysts. It can decrease the pressure of cysts oppressing the kidneys so as to alleviate high blood pressure to some extent. However, surger can do some damages on other surrounding organs, so it is also not a radical treatment for high blood pressure.

Chinese medicines treatment

The ingredients in Chinese herbs can expand the blood vessels on the vascular wall around the cysts, and speed up the blood circulation of the cyst wall. In this way, the permeability of the cyst can be increased, the internal pressure of the blood vessels on the cyst wall is decreased which reverses the intravascular pressure is higher than the intracapsular pressure. Thus, the cystic fluid can be absorbed gradually by the blood vessels. Besides, the active substances in the herbs can restrain the secretion of the epithelial cells so the cystic blood vessels and cysts will stop growing.

The Chinese herbs in treating kidney cysts avoid the risk of the surgery and the side effects of the oral medicines. It is a better treatment for the long run. For more information please email us: chinesemedicinekidney@hotmail.com.
