The Pee Dee Nephrology team of doctors diagnose and treat all types of kidney disease and hypertension (high blood pressure). Our doctors partner with referring physicians to offer the best possible treatment for our patients.
Understanding Hypertension and Kidney Disease
Elevated blood pressure caused by kidney disease is known as, renal hypertension. Renal hypertension happens when the arteries narrow that deliver blood to your kidneys. The kidneys react to this low blood flow by secreting hormones that cause the body to retain sodium and water ultimately causing blood pressure to go up. Pee Dee Nephrology doctors specialize in helping patients with renal hypertension via consultation, blood pressure medication, and monitoring.
