The morbidity of Hypertension is high among elder people, and Hypertension is so common for those elders who suffer from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). We need to know that the Hypertension has its own characteristics when invading elder people, so the treatment differs accordingly.

First, elder people tend to get high blood pressure more easily. The morbidity is comparatively higher among them, and ISH (Isolated Systolic Hypertension, SBP>160mmHg, DBP<90mmHg) is commonly seen. NHANES (National Health And Nutrition Examination Survey) done several years ago shows: the ISH is rarely seen among those who are younger than 44 years old, while there are about 15%-43% elder people can get it when they are older than 65.

Second, the fluctuation of blood pressure is obvious. Elders tend to have unstable blood pressure, especially the SBP, and the blood pressure may change greatly in a day. Therefore, the elders need more careful nursing and observation on the blood pressure. Also, their blood pressure cannot be reduced sharply, so the medicine they take should be chosen under doctors suggestion.

Third, there are more complications aroused by Hypertension among the elders, which mainly include cardiovascular diseases, and the high blood pressure will aggravate the Chronic Kidney Disease or lead to kidney lesions further. Hypertension is the main reason for renal sclerosis, and elder people always have other diseases such as Diabetes and Hyperlipidemia, so kidney failure is easy to see among those who have both Chronic Kidney Disease and Hypertension.

According to these characteristics of Hypertension in elder people, it is found that Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a better choice for them. Chinese medicine will not lower down the blood pressure in a sudden, and it can dilate the blood vessels so as to promote the blood circulation, achieving the goal of lowering blood pressure. It is the method to treat the disease from the root cause, and with an improved blood circulation, other complications can be affected therewith.

Elder people are more fragile when facing with various kinds of disease. When they suffer from Chronic Kidney Disease, their blood pressure will influenced by the condition that kidney lack oxygen and blood at the same time. They need to be treated in special based on the characteristics of their blood pressure, and the specific treatment for them should be chosen by specialists instead of themselves.
