Swelling of Ankles and Hypertensive Nephropathy

Swelling of Ankles and Hypertensive NephropathySwelling of ankles, if severe, may affect patients’ everyday life. For Hypertensive Nephropathy patients, kidneys are unable to do their work normally. There is no doubt this increases the risk of ankle swelling. Do you know the cause and management? If not, follow me to find the answer.

Causes of ankle swelling for hypertensive kidney disease patients

If the involved ankle is red and swollen, it must indicate arthritis or gout, which has a close link with the deposits of uric acid. Uric acid is one waste product discharged out of the body via kidneys. With the decline of kidney function, more and more uric acid builds up in the body, inducing arthritis and gout.

If the involved ankle is only swollen, it is caused by either fluid retention or heavy loss of protein. In clinic, proteinuria, the indicator of protein leakage, is the first sign of Hypertensive Nephropathy. This causes low plasma protein osmotic pressure, resulting in more fluid depositing in some tissues. Fluid retention is related to the decline of kidney function.

Treatments of ankle swelling for Hypertensive Nephropathy patients

To achieve this goal, both medical therapies and home remedies are important, so we introduce our suggestions in two aspects.

Medical treatments to alleviate swelling of ankles

According to this requirement, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can be helpful. Since it is one external application of Chinese medicine, patients don’t need to worry any side effect or discomfort. We promise you can improve your overall health condition comfortably with these remedies.
