How does hypertension cause kidney damage?

I can't get my head around the relationship between chronic kidney disease (CKD) and hypertension in diabetes. Does hypertension cause the CKD or does the CKD cause hypertension?

Treatment of hypertension in patients with end stage renal failure on haemodialysis?

I heard a renal registrar mention that patients put on haemodialysis who are previously diagnosed with hypertension often don't require pharmacological treatment any more. Why would this be? Is this true?

How does acute renal failure cause anemia?

How do the two relate to each other? Is the anemia hemolytic, or hypovolemic? Is it the presence of hematuria that causes anemia, could it be severe enough to do so?

Increased GFR or decreased GFR in DM causes diabetic nephropathy?

Hi everyone, I am a little confused about the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy in DM. Is it... ...hyperglycaemia inducing vasodilation in the renal arteries ---> increased GFR ---> damage to the glomerulus ---> eventually, end stage renal disease? OR ...hyaline arterial stenosis of renal arteries ---> decreased GFR ---> nephrotic syndrome ---> end stage renal disease? OR ...hyperglycaemia inducing matrix proliferation in the glomerulus ---> decreased GFR ---> damage to the glomerulus ---> end stage renal disease? OR ...none of the above? Would appreciate it if anyone who can shed some light! Thanks!

How do thiazides cause hypercalcaemia?

I was discussing with a renal consultant the reasons for avoiding thiazides in patients with sarcoidosis with renal involvement. I think it is well established that they can cause hypercalcaemia but after (not very much) searching on the internet and in textbooks I can't seem to find out why? Does anybody know?

Renal MCQ

A 42 year old man develops a sore throat. He does not consult his GP but takes some over the counter painkillers and an anti-inflammatory. 1 week later he has a non itchy rash starting on his feet then spreading to his trunk. The rash has the appearance of tiny teardrops. He is correctly diagnosed with guttate psoriasis. The patient is put on penicillin orally 250mg QDS for 1 week. He then starts passing small volumes of urine. His urine is described as "orangey brown" . He continues taking a non steroidal anti inflammatory drug (ibuprofen 800mg TDS). What is the most likely explanation for this? a. Post infective glomerulonephritis b. Rheumatic fever c. Secondary to penicillin d. Interstitial nephritis secondary to anti inflammatory medication
