Is the lower blood pressure target for patients with chronic kidney disease supported by evidence
Current Opinion in Cardiology, 06/26/2012
Upadhyay A et al. – Evidence supports a blood pressure (BP) target of less than 140/90mmHg in most patients with CKD. A lower target may be chosen in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients with proteinuria after individualized risk–benefit assessment. Treatment to a lower target may require greater vigilance to monitor for and avoid possible symptoms and adverse events from hypotension.
