Management Of Blood Pressure In Chronic Kidney Disease
Lifestyle and pharmacological treatments for lowering blood pressure in CKD ND patients
- We recommend achieving or maintaining a healthy weight (BMI 20 to 25).
- We recommend lowering salt intake to <90 mmol (<2 g) per day of sodium (corresponding to 5 g of sodium chloride), unless contraindicated.
- We recommend undertaking an exercise program compatible with cardiovascular health and tolerance, aiming for at least 30 minutes 5 times per week.
- We suggest limiting alcohol intake to no more than two standard drinks per day for men and no more than one standard drink per day for women.
