Nursing Cares for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients with Swelling

Nursing Cares for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients with SwellingSwelling may cause some inconveniences for patients with Nephrotic Syndrome, so patients should pay highly attention to this symptom. In addition to medical therapies, nursing cares are also important to help deal with swelling.

1. If patients have swelling, they should record their abdominal girth and weight, and they should do urine test for 2 or 3 times every week. Therefore, patients can observe their illness condition timely.

2. Have more rest especially when patients have severe swelling or high blood pressure. Patients with mild swelling don’t need to restrict their physical activity tightly. On contrary, children with Nephrotic Syndrome should take moderate activity. Moderate exercise can help improve blood circulation all over the body, so as to ease fluid retention to some extent.

3. In kidney-friendly diet plan, patients should take in enough calorie but limit the intake of protein. The daily recommendation of protein intake is about 0.8~1.2g/kg body weight. Besides, patients should follow a low-sodium diet plan.

4. When patients have swelling, they should pay attention to skin nursing. Keep skin clean and dry, and prevent injury and oppression on skin. Besides, patients should change their clothes and bedding regularly.

5. Prevent infections and cold actively. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, swelling usually has a close link with protein leakage. Along with protein leakage, some immunoglubin leaks into urine. This makes patients at a high risk of infections. If patients get infections, their health condition may be worsened easily.

6. Do Medicated Bath or Foot Bath regularly. These two therapies can help prompt the therapeutic effects of medicines and therapies. If you are interested, you can consult the doctor to take these therapies correctly. Then, you can get more effects than you expect.
