The authors also present current recommendations for the management of dyslipidemia in hypertensive and chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients, and new strategies to prevent cardiovascular risk in CKD patients, the optimal level of blood pressure in patients with hypertensive nephropathy and which hypotensive drugs are the most nephroprotective.
