Abstract

Hypertension is a risk factor for chronic kidney disease (CKD), but the optimal blood pressure (BP) target in patients with stage 3–5 CKD is unclear. Now, a meta-analysis reports that more-intensive BP control is associated with a reduced risk of all-cause mortality compared with less-intensive BP goals in this high-risk population.
