How does kidney disease lead to swelling?

For people with kidney disease, swelling (edema) can be commonly seen. If not controlled well, various discomforts are more likely to occur. Thereby, it is essential to understand the causes and treatments.

What does swelling mean?

Swelling occurs when extra fluid accumulate in the body tissues. It can be found around the eyelids, hands, feet and lower limbs. In serious cases, it will spread to the whole body, and pulmonary edema may appear. Frankly speaking, this abnormal symptom can be caused by many factors, for instance, drugs, pregnancy, heat failure, kidney disease, malnutrition or cirrhosis of the liver.

How does kidney disease lead to swelling?

1.Fluid-sodium retention As kidneys become damaged, they will not be able to filter excess fluid and sodium out of the blood. In this way, these substances become trapped in the body tissues, resulting in edema.

2.Loss of protein in urine Kidneys are regarded as “blood-cleaners” of our body, on the one hand, wastes can be excreted out of the body. On the other hand, they can retain nutrients like protein. Due to decline of kidney function, proteins can leak into urine easily. When the plasma osmotic pressure become decreased, extra fluid will build up in the interstitial spaces.

How to manage swelling in kidney disease patients?

-Reduce dietary salt intake To help alleviate swelling, the first step is to follow a low salt diet.

-Medications In addition to reduce the intake of sodium, doctors can also prescribe patients with diuretics to eliminate the excess fluid that accumulated within the body. However, drugs can not resolve this problem from the underlying cause.

-Improve kidney function To deal with this sign radically, the most important step is to restore kidney function. Here, a brand-new therapy called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can be a reliable choice.
