How to Manage Puffy Eyes and Belly with Lupus Nephritis

How to Manage Puffy Eyes and Belly with Lupus NephritisIt is fairly common for Lupus Nephritis patients to have swelling including puffy eyes and belly. In severe cases, puffy eyes must affect patients' eyesight, so good management of puffy eyes and belly becomes Lupus Nephritis patients' big concern.

Lupus Nephritis is one glomerulonephritis which occurs when various factors damage kidney filtering structure, so proteinuria and swelling are two most common symptoms of glomerulonephritis as well as Lupus Nephritis. Swelling has a close relationship with both protein leakage and fluid retention, so the treatment should be able to inhibit protein leakage and eliminate extra fluid. The detailed methods are as follow.

* Food Therapy

Food therapy is the most natural remedy to help deal with swelling in eyes and belly. On one hand, Lupus Nephritis patients are advised to limit their fluid and sodium intake to prevent more fluid from retaining in the body. On the other hand, patients should take more high-quality protein to increase their plasma osmotic pressure that can inhibit fluid from leaking into tissues, but the total intake amount of protein should be controlled.

* Lifting your head and belly

Making regions affected by swelling higher than other regions can help reduce fluid accumulation in these affected regions. This is one easy method that worths a try.

* Oral taking medicines

In clinic, many medicines can help alleviate puffy eyes and belly. For example, diuretic can stimulate kidneys to produce more urine, so as to take away more fluid, while ACEI and ARBs can not only control high blood pressure but also manage protein leakage. Check with the Doctor online to determine what medicines you can take to ease puffy eyes and belly.

The above methods can help control swelling effectively, but they are unable to treat it from the root. To get rid of swelling, patients should seek some kidney repairing therapies.
