Abstract

In observational studies the relationship between blood pressure and chronic kidney diseases is direct and progressive. Evidence from numerous clinical trials has demonstrated the benefit of blood pressure control. Till now however blood-pressure target for optimal renal protection is controversial. Previously European guidelines on the management of hypertension: the European Society of Hypertension position statement from 2007 and Polish guidelines from 2008 recommended reduction of blood pressure below 130/80 mm Hg and in patients with proteinuria below 125/75 mm Hg.
The latest European and Polish guidelines recommended higher threshold of blood pressure below 140/90 mm Hg for these patients. In this paper we review current evidence concerning blood pressure goals in patients with chronic kidney diseases.
