Swollen Belly and Puffy Face for Kidney Disease Patients

Swollen Belly and Puffy Face for Kidney Disease Patients When kidneys are unable to excrete extra fluid, sodium, and some other waste products normally, they will collect in the body. Then, swollen belly and puffy face may occur easily. If this occurs, patients should take some managements timely.

Is fluid retention the only reason for swollen belly and puffy face?

Of course not. In addition to buildup of fluid retention, protein will leak into the urine, resulting in low plasma osmotic pressure. Then, extra fluid will deposit in the body. When it collects in belly and face, swollen belly and puffy face will happen.

How to treat swollen belly and face swelling?

To prevent swelling from worsening, patients should control fluid intake tightly. In addition to water, soup, vegetable, fruit, beverage, drink, should also be considered as fluid source. To increase plasma osmotic pressure, kidney patients should eat more high-quality protein such as egg white and fish.
