Thanks for the query.

Increase and uncontrolled blood pressure may be indicative of renal disease getting worse.
Check for loss of proteins in the urine to assess the extent of renal damage.

Salt and protein restriction is needed with medication.
Less than 4 mg of salt should be taken per day.

Drugs of choice for hypertension in this case are
- Thiazide and loop diuretics for adequate diuresis.
- ACE inhibitors and Angiotension receptor blocker are to be used carefully by monitoring Potassium and creatinine.

Hope the answer helps you. Pleased to answer other queries.
