ABSTRACT

Kidney disease is a decrease in the kidney’s ability to remove waste and may have an impact on the other functions of the kidney. Hypertension is one such contributing risk factor, and is said to be very frequent in patients with renal disease and progresses with time. This study was aimed to assess the prevalence of kidney disease in hypertensive patients and prescribing patterns of antihypertensive in kidney disease based on the staging of hypertension and CKD on their respective scales. A prospective type of observational study was conducted among 130 hypertensive subjects in a follow-up tertiary care hospital for a period of six months. The information was taken down on data collection forms and were analyzed using statistical software. Out of 130 patients screened, the age was between18-80years, and 91 were males and 39 were females. The overall prevalence of kidney disease in hypertensive patients was found to be 68.4% among them males were 61.75% and females were 38.2%.The antihypertensive prescribed the most were CCB’s 73(27.97%), loop diuretics 70 (26.82%), beta-blockers 42 (16.09%).The study concludes that the prevalence of kidney disease is significant in hypertensive patients’ i.e. 68.4%.
