Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend
Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
High BP in a patient with Chronic Kidney Disease is due to Renovascular Hypertension.
It has no relationship with Heparin or PD dextrose fluid.
I would advise you to discuss with your doctor about adding to Prazosin to your prescription for better BP control.
But one thing is clear and certain that it is not due to heparin and PD dextrose fluid.
If you have any further query please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
