Hypertension (Definition)

The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

Kidney stones: While the kidneys do have a roll in regulating blood pressure, it is unlikely that the presence of non-obstructing stones in the kidney would increase blood pressure.

I have high levels of neutrophils and low lymphocytes bone aches high blood pressure kidney stones and daily migraines? What could be wrong

I have high levels of neutrophils and low lymphocytes bone aches high blood pressure kidney stones and daily migraines? What could be wrong

Plan for each: You have a variety of symptoms, some of which may be related ... others not. I don't think there is one diagnosis that explains all of your symptoms. You need to work closely with a doctor you have confidence in to diagnose and properly treat all of these. Don't get discouraged .... wonder about smoking with the high neutrophils. If so, this is a good place to start. Good wishes:) ...Read more

I haven't had sex in 2 months,  now i have a white discharge coming out , i also have high blood pressure and not sure if it was a kidney stone or STD?

Need for testing: Kidney stone will not cause white discharge from urethra. You should be tested for STD. Some of the STDs may take more than 2 months to manifest. Please see your doctor and if you do not have one, you may contact your city/county health department for testing. It is also imperative that you treat your high blood pressure, even if you have no symptoms, as it can damage the heart, kidney etc. ...Read more

Why does high blood pressure ruin your kidneys?

Why does high blood pressure ruin your kidneys?

Kidneys are delicate: The kidneys filter all of your blood 24 hours a day. In order to filter the blood, they have a very delicate system of membranes and tissues to keep the good stuff in and let the bad stuff go out. When your blood pressure is always high, it puts a lot of stress on these delicate parts. The kidneys then respond by trying to thicken up the membranes, which causes problems filtering blood. ...Read more

I was given cardura (doxazosin) 4mg to pass a stone. I don't have high blood pressure. Is it ok to start off at the 4 mg dose or should I start with the 1 mg?

I was given cardura (doxazosin) 4mg to pass a stone. I don't have high blood pressure. Is it ok to start off at the 4 mg dose or should I start with the 1 mg?

Be careful!: That dose sounds awfully high as a starting dose! you're right - we usually start with the 1mg dose and build up, because the last thing you want is to get up in the middle of the night and fall to the ground because your blood pressure has plummeted from too high of a starting dose. Ask your doctor about Flomax (tamsulosin) as an aid to passing your kidney stone. Be sure to strain your urine to get the stone! ...Read more

Can kidney stones cause your pulse or blood pressure to raise ?

Can kidney stones cause your pulse or blood pressure to raise ?

Indirectly.: The pain caused by obstruction of the urinary system by stones can cause the blood pressure and heart rate to rise. This can also occur if there is an associated infection. In the absence of symptoms like pain, we don't commonly associate stones with cardiovascular signs. That being said, there is evidence that obesity, high-fat diet, & sodium are risk factors for both hypertension and stones. ...Read more
