Swelling on Legs with Diabetic Nephropathy

Swelling on Legs with Diabetic NephropathyThe onset of Diabetic Nephropathy is often accompanied by many other problems, while swelling on legs is just one common symptom. Swollen legs are usually due to more than diabetes.

Causes of swelling on legs for diabetic nephropathy patients

If uncontrolled effectively, diabetics' blood sugar will be floated that can induce diabetic neuropathy especially in the lower limbs and feet. Along with neuropathy in legs, patients can find swelling on their legs easily.

When kidneys are affected by diabetes, they are unable to eliminate extra fluid from the body effectively. As extra fluid retains in the legs, this symptom will appear. Besides, damaged kidney filtration membrane causes protein to leak from the kidney into urine, resulting in low plasma osmotic pressure. This leads more fluid to build up in lower limbs.

How to manage swelling on legs?

Based on the above causes, we would like to recommend some remedies that can help manage these problems. For example:

1. Foot Bath

It can help improve blood circulation all over the body especially in feet and legs. As blood flows normally in these regions, more fluid, sugar, waste products and toxins can be eliminated out of the body via blood circulation. Then, diabetic neuropathy and fluid retention will be managed effectively.

2. Medications

In clinic, some medicines like diuretic are able to stimulate kidneys to produce more urine, taking away more fluid from the body. The key is to take correct medicines, so you can check with the doctor online to detect correct medicine for you.

3. Clear Blood Pollution Therapy
