Increased Blood Viscosity is Associated With Reduced Renal Function and Elevated Urinary Albumin Excretion in Essential Hypertensives Without Chronic Kidney Disease.
Increased blood viscosity reduces blood flow and elevates vascular resistance in the cardiovascular system. The aim of this study was to elucidate how blood viscosity could affect renal function and eventually contribute to renal damage in essential hypertensives (EHT). In 164 untreated EHT...
