Swelling in People with Chronic Kidney Disease(CKD)
For people with Chronic Kidney Disease(CKD), they are usually trouble by swelling. And it can be found around the eyelids, faces or ankles at the beginning, in serious condition, it may spread to the whole body. Well then, what are the causes and how to alleviate it effectively?
Causes of edema in people with CKD
In normal condition, healthy kidneys can help maintain the balance of water and electrolytes. However, in CKD, the damaged kidneys will lose their ability fo filter waste products and extra water as they normally do. Gradually, water-sodium retention will occur in the body, and resulting swelling.
Another major reason can be loss of protein into the urine, because heavy protein leakage can decrease the osmotic pressure of blood vessel and then edema.
How to relieve this symptom effectively?
Actually speaking, the onset of edema has close connection with the impaired renal function. Therefore, it is necessary to restore it.
In normal condition, drugs like diuretics or immunosuppressive agents can be used to alleviate this symptom effectively. However, they can do nothing to the damaged kidneys. Here, we recommend patients with Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. As a combination of TCM and modern technology, it can not only relive the relevant symptoms like swelling but also improve the overall condition.
