Status: Baseline only
Reduce the proportion of adults with chronic kidney disease who have elevated blood pressure
Baseline: 46.6 percent of adults aged 18 years and over with chronic kidney disease had elevated blood pressure in 2013-16 (age adjusted to the year 2000 standard population)
Target: 42.8 percent
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.
