My great aunt was diagnosed with renovascular hypertension after going through a series of tests. She wanted to explore all the renal hypertension treatment options available to her. My great aunt did not have any other diagnoses aside from the high blood pressure that first alerted her doctor to a problem.
She was nervous about having surgery and wanted to know if there were options available to her other than having her renal arteries widened. She tried different medications to bring down her blood pressure to get it more manageable. She stopped eating red meat and cut back to only one drink every now and then. She was never a smoker, so that did not contribute to problems with her arteries.
In the end, my great aunt had to undergo surgery to fix her renal arteries. She was able to go off her blood pressure medication afterward. Her lifestyle changes helped her maintain and improve her health after the procedure.
