Possible Renal Damage and Its Relation with Cholesterol Level Among the Hypertensive and Non-Hypertensive Patients by Using Ultrasonographic Parameters

Background: Renal disease is a leading cause of death and morbidity in Bangladesh, and hypertension and dyslipidemia are important risk factors for this condition. Objective: The objective of this study was to find out the possible renal damage and its relation with cholesterol level among the hypertensive and non-hypertensive patients by using ultrasonographic paramaters. Methods: This was a case control study. The sample size was 135 in each group (Hypertensive and normotensive) which was selected purposively. Data were collected on different renal parameters, blood pressure, smoking status, and lipid profile, including total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). Results: Relationship between TC, TAG, HLD, LDL and different renal parameters (Renal bipolar length, Renal anterior-posterior diameter, Renal cortical thickness, Renal cortical echogenecity, Corticomedullary differentiation) were found statistically significant. This indicates that increased cholesterol levels among the hypertensive patients there were possibility of renal damage. We need to identify it earlier and protecting the renal conditions. This finding provides more evidence that hypertension patients with high cholesterol levels are at increased risk for developing kidney impairment down the road. Ultrasonographic parameters showed the variations between the two groups. Conclusion: Patients with hypertension in Bangladesh should undergo routine blood pressure and ultrasonography examinations of renal parameters and lipid profiles to detect and prevent renal disease, which is frequently associated with high cholesterol.
