How to treat renal disease patients’ edema

How to treat renal disease patients’ edemaEdema is a common symptom to patients with kidney disease, especially for patients with nephrotic syndrome. In fact, patients with kidney disease need to have a good understanding about their disease, and it is also necessary for them to know how to treat edema.

Edema is a major complication of kidney disease, and it is mainly caused by the large amount loss of protein and the retention of water and sodium, which are caused by kidney insufficiency. The loss of protein will reduce the osmotic pressure of blood, which will lead to the fluid in blood vessels flowing into the tissue space.
