Are chronic hypertension patients regularly tested for kidney failure?

Kidney failure. In well controlled hypertension patients we usually watch kidney function at least once a year if not more frequently. If there is evidence of early kidney damage then that frequency might be more often. A blood test or a urine test will give us a good idea how the kidneys are functioning.
Yes. Yes. They should be tested for kidney disease as hypertension is one the leading causes of kidney failure world wide.
Health screening. Most physicians following the same guidelines when it comes to health screening. A patient with high blood pressure would be checked for diabetes, elevated cholesterol, and kidney dysfunction from time to time. The testing is a simple blood and urine test.

The. The safest, least expensive, and most effective form of birth control ever developed is the vasectomy performed on a male partner.

Compare that to tubal ligations that must be done under a general anesthetic and are not appropriate for patients with significant medical problems.

A patient having polycysitc kidney disease associate with hypertension, do we call this secondary hypertension&is it due to cysts this BP elevation?

Good question. Combination of hypertension and abdominal mass is suggestive of pkd. Fifty percent of patients will have hypertension at time diagnosis is made of PKD and will develop in most patients during the course of the disease. It is of interest to note that decompression of the cysts can lower blood pressure temporarily.
Yes. Secondary means that the cause of the high BP is because of another problem. In your case poly cystic kidney disease is most likely the primary problem. At any the longevity of your kidneys will depend in great part on excellent BP control. That means systolic almost always below 130 and rather more like 120 diastolic below 80. Good health.
PKD and HIBP. PKD causes hypertension in most affected persons. This is not secondary hypertension in the classical sense; this evolves from cysts, cyst compression of arteries, elevation of renin and angiotensin, and salt retention; meds help; low salt helps; avoid saturated fats; drink 4-5 liters fluid per day; avoid caffeine.

Legs have been swollen for two weeks I have dibeates and hypertension I was recently dignoised with chronic kidney failure. For the past two weeks my legs and ankles have been swollen really bad, after I soak them or get up from laying down they burn but

I. I think you might have two problems here. Chronic renal failure (kidney disease) is well-known to cause fluid retention, and thus, swelling in the legs and feet (gravity brings the fluid down there). While there certainly is a neuropathy associated with kidney disease, it's much more prevalent in diabetes, especially if your diabetes is not well controlled. What might relate the two symptoms you're having is this: hydrostatic pressure on the small nerves from the swelling may be making any minor neuropathy feel worse than it is. I don't think you're dealing with an "emergency" situation, but you most definitely should call your doctor today and let him or her know what's going on. I would not advise soaking them, since warmth will tend to dilate your blood vessels and make the swelling worse. I hope this helps.
Swollen legs. What stage of chronic kidney disease (ckd) are you in? See a nephrologist and get a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein. If you have CKD 1 or 2, you will likely need to see a cardiologist to evaluate your heart's ejection fraction, as CKD of this degree is not normally associated with swelling. If you have a high protein in your collection, that could be the cause of your edema.
Needs evaluation. With kidney failure, one retains salt and water that can cause leg swelling. If you are leaking too much protein in the urine, that also contributes to it. Certain medications can cause leg swelling eg some BP meds, pain killers etc. Talk to your kidney doctor.
