BACKGROUND Low mean arterial pressure (MAP) can cause low renal blood flow and damage the kidneys. However, in the general population, it remains unclear whether or not decline in renal function is related to MAP. The present study examined the relationship between MAP and decreased glomerular filtration rate(GFR) in participants aged ≥ 35 years from the… CONTINUE READING
