Hypertension and Chronic kidney disease are two most prominent public health problems and show similar clinical complications like high blood pressure and poor renal system. These diseases are due to over activation of sympathetic nervous system. Genetically, the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene is involved in hypertension and chronic kidney diseases where the D polymorphism is related to chronic kidney disease and hypertension. The objective of study is to correlate the absolute relationship between hypertension and renal complications in the polymorphism of ACE 1 gene. Results of statistical analysis conclude that none of the genotype distributions followed the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and the differences in genotypes or alleles were not statistically significant. The overall frequency of II genotype was 0.226, DD was 0.499 and ID was 0.276 respectively. Similarly, the frequency of I allele in the study population was 0.475 and D allele was 0.525 respectively. Although the results showed that ID genotype for ACE1 gene are found in hypertension and chronic kidney disease, large studies should be performed to verify the analysis.
