High blood pressure or hypertension is one of the common symptoms of FSGS. As we know that, Renal hypertension, a general name of high blood pressure caused by kidney disease, is a kind of secondary hypertension, accounting for 5% ~ 10% of adult hypertension.

Glomerular disease can lead to high blood pressure by two ways:

(1) When Nephritis occurs, the glomerular filtration rate decreases, and the sodium renal tubules absorb back will increase as a result of sodium retention, blood volume expansion, leading to high blood pressure. This kind of high blood pressure is called volume dependence of high blood pressure.

(2) Nephritis will cause renal ischemia, as a result of body renin secretion and increased angiotensin Ⅱ synthesis. On the one hand, angiotensin Ⅱ can cause the vasoconstriction, leading to high blood pressure; On the other hand, it can stimulate the secretion of aldosterone and increase the body water and sodium retention, therefore promote high blood pressure. Such kind of high blood pressure is known as renin-dependent hypertension. In the majority of high blood pressure cases related to the glomerular disease, both factors are coexist, of which the former accounts for about 80% of cases, and the latter is just about 10% of cases.
