Why Patients With Kidney Disease Have Edema

Why Patients With Kidney Disease Have EdemaA common symptom in patients with kidney disease is edema. Patients may have this symptom in their lower legs or around their eyes at the beginning, but patients with severe edema can have edema in their lungs or stomach, which can cause them hard to breath or have stomach pain.

Why kidney disease patients have edema?

Kidney is the organ that can keep our internal balance, including the water balance, the electrolyte balance, etc. While for patients with kidney disease, they often have damage in their kidney, which can make patients have many internal disorders.

A major reason of kidney disease patient’s edema is their large protein loss. Protein loss can reduce the osmotic pressure of patient’s blood vessel, which can cause the fluid in blood vessel flowing into tissue space. This condition is common to be seen in patients with nephrotic syndrome.

Another major reason for patients with kidney disease is the retention of water and sodium. As patient’s glomerular filtration rate declines, patient’s kidneys will lose their ability to filter water and wastes normally. When the excess amount of fluid in body is more than the amount that can be excreted by patient’s kidneys, there will be much fluid retained in body, which may flow into patient’s tissue space, and cause swelling.

What can they do to relieve heir condition?

For patients with kidney disease, drinking water is good for their kidney condition. But if patients have obvious edema, they should restrict their fluid intake to relieve their condition.

Except for the water that we take in in our diet, there is a part of fluid in our body is produced by body metabolism, and this part of fluid should also be calculated into patient’s water intake. The common calculation method of water intake for patients with obvious edema is 500 ml plus patient’s yesterday’s urine amount.

Besides, no matter what is the cause of edema, patients should always do what they can to improve their kidney function. In their treatment, western medicine treatment may be good at controlling their condition, but chinese medicine treatment is recommended for improving their kidney function, because it aims at improving patient’s self-repairing ability to improve their overall condition. Besides, diet restriction and life habits changes will provide a great help for patient’s recovery.
