Actually,high blood pressure is common to see in patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease. There are mainly 2 reasons that cause this situation. One is the influence of renin and the other is the retention of water and sodium.
Owing to the damaged kidneys,the renal function is not regular and effective,which effects the production of renin. The cysts will oppress the kidneys and the decreased renin will also cause the increase the blood volume,leading to the high blood pressure.
On the other hand,the damaged kidneys can not eliminate the overmuch water,waste and metabolite,which may cause the retention of water and sodium,resulting in the hypertension.
