Membranous Nephropathy and Swelling
Membranous Nephropathy refers to a medical condition in which the filtering units named glomeruli became inflamed and thickened. As the disease progresses, a series of symptoms including swelling will occur. In this text, we will introduce its causes and treatments.
Why swelling occur in membranous nephropathy?
In normal condition, healthy kidneys can help discharge metabolic products and toxins out of the blood. However, in membranous nephropathy, the damaged glomeruli in kidneys can not work normally. As a result, protein will pass through the small blood vessels and leak into urine. Meanwhile, excessive fluid will flow into the surrounding tissue space, resulting swelling.
Besides, water-sodium retention is another risk factor for edema. And it can occur around the eyelids, ankles, hands and gradually spread to other parts of the body.

Patients troubled by this symptom should realize the importance of a healthy diet. After careful study, experts at our Peking Tung Shin Tang Chinese Medical Hospital suggest a low-salt diet and low-protein protein diet. Therefore, it is necessary to stay away from salty foods, processed products, peanut, walnut, internal organs of animals, bean products and so on.
It has been proven that some herbs can help improve renal function and eliminate this symptoms naturally. Such as, parsley, juniper, dandelion root and so on.
