Answer

In patients with renal disease and moderately increased albuminuria, the goal is a blood pressure of 130/80 mm Hg or less. [40] If more than 1 g/day of urinary protein is present, the target blood pressure is less than 125/75 mm Hg. Achieving good blood pressure control helps slow the progression of renal disease. [41] A study by Patch et al showed that when intensity and coverage of antihypertensive therapy were increased, mortality decreased for patients with ADPKD. [42]
