Hello Nila, Thank you for the question.
Have you consulted further with an internist who is treating your parents? Hypertension is a condition of blood pressure that is higher than normal ie 130/80 mmHg and above. If this condition occurs prolonged and is not treated properly, hypertension can cause a number of health complications such as stroke, kidney failure, and heart failure. Chronic kidney failure is a condition that decreases kidney function gradually over a long period of time. This condition can cause electrolyte disturbances, buildup of waste, and buildup of fluids in the body due to impaired kidney filtering function. This disease is a fairly complex disease. One cause of kidney failure is hypertension, but the condition of kidney failure itself can also cause the sufferer's blood pressure to increase; or in other words kidney function and blood pressure are conditions that interact with each other.
Giving antihypertensive drugs can not be done without a doctor's examination. Antihypertensive drugs consist of several classes of drugs. A doctor will give antihypertensive medication depending on the condition of each patient and the body's response to the drug. Someone who has kidney failure will be treated with certain antihypertensive drugs, depending on the condition of the patient (whether there has been a leak of protein, if the patient has swelling, and others). Thus, the best step in determining an antihypertensive medication for your parents is to consult directly with a specialist in internal medicine who treats your parents. There are several other factors that also need to be known by the doctor before determining the appropriate drug for example the patient's medical history, variations in blood pressure so far, health complications experienced by the patient, other drugs consumed by the patient, a history of drug allergy, and so on. , in-depth information is needed about the condition of the patient. Please consult more with your doctor who treats your parents. Also discuss with your doctor other treatment steps so that your parents' blood pressure can be controlled properly.
Encourage your parents to limit their intake of foods that are high in salt and make it a habit to consume regular foods. Also follow the doctor's advice in dealing with the condition of kidney failure.
Hopefully this information helps you.
