Reduce the proportion of adults with chronic kidney disease who have elevated blood pressure
When people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have untreated high blood pressure, it can lead to heart problems, end-stage kidney disease (ESKD), and early death. Improving blood pressure control in people with CKD can help prevent or delay ESKD. Evidence shows that ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) inhibitors and ARBs (angiotensin II receptor blockers) can lower blood pressure and reduce kidney damage.
