Methods to Alleviate Extreme Edema In Feet for FSGS Patients

Methods to Alleviate Extreme Edema In Feet for FSGS PatientsFSGS is one glomerular disorder which causes kidney filters, also known as glomeruli, to fail to work. This leads to various symptoms and complications including extreme edema in feet. If this symptom happens, it may affect patients’ walking ability. Therefore, how to alleviate extreme edema becomes FSGS patients’ concern.

General speaking, edema is due to two reasons: fluid retention and protein leakage. When kidneys are unable to produce enough urine, extra fluid will retain in the body, resulting in edema in legs, feet, ankles, face around eyelid, and so on. If glomeruli are damaged, they will lose their ability to keep nutrition in the body, and then protein may leak from the kidneys into urine. This can lead to low plasma osmotic pressure and extra fluid in some tissues.

According to the causes, the following methods can help ease foot swelling for FSGS patients. To learn which treatment is suitable for you, you can email to or consult the Doctor online.

1. Restrict the intake of fluid and sodium

Extra fluid can worsen patients’ swelling directly, while excessive amount of sodium intake can cause fluid to retain in the body. Therefore, in addition to controlling fluid intake, FSGS patients should also develop a low-sodium diet plan. The recommendation of sodium intake is about 1,500~2,000 mg per day for kidney patients with swelling.

2. Take correct medications

In clinic, many medicines such as ACEI, ARBs, steroids and diuretics are helpful to inhibit protein leakage and stimulate the kidneys to produce more urine. Therefore, correct medications can help manage this symptom effectively.

3. Do Foot Bath Regularly

Foot bath is one method of Traditional Chinese Medicine that can improve the blood circulation all over the body effectively. For patients who have swelling, Foot Bath is also one great auxiliary method to ease swelling.

4. Take oral Chinese medicines

Some Chinese medicines have strong healing ability that can prompt damaged kidney cells to recover to work gradually. Once impaired glomeruli work again, extreme edema in feet can disappear naturally.
