Antihypertensive therapy prescribing patterns and correlates of blood pressure control among hypertensive patients with chronic kidney disease

We used electronic health records (EHRs) data from 5658 ambulatory chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients with hypertension and prescribed antihypertensive therapy to examine antihypertensive drug prescribing patterns, blood pressure (BP) control, and risk factors for resistant hypertension (RHTN) in a real-world setting. Two-thirds of CKD patients and three-fourths of those with proteinuria were prescribed guideline-recommended renoprotective agents including an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) or an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB); however, one-third were not prescribed an ACEI or ARB. CKD patients, particularly those with stages 1-2 CKD, who were prescribed regimens including beta-blocker (BB) + diuretic or ACEI/ARB + BB + diuretic were more likely to have controlled BP (<140/90 mm Hg) compared to those prescribed other combinations. Risk factors for RHTN included African American race and major comorbidities. Clinicians may use these findings to tailor antihypertensive therapy to the needs of each patient, including providing CKD stage-specific treatment, and better identify CKD patients at risk of RHTN.
