Facial Puffiness for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Facial Puffiness for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsNephrotic Syndrome often occurs in children, and a lot of them have facial puffiness. Some people thinks this symptom only affects patients’ appearance. In fact, this thought is wrong. Face swelling can reveal some underlying disorders.


Nephrotic Syndrome can be caused by many disorders and characterized by the increase of glomerular basement permeability. This leads a large amount of protein to leak into the urine, resulting in hypoproteinemia easily. Accordingly, plasma colloid osmotic pressure declines, and fluid spreads from blood vessels into tissue spaces. This is the basic reason of swelling or edema for Nephrotic Syndrome patients.

The recent research shows about 50% of patients have normal or increased blood volume and normal or declined plasma rennin level. This reminds the onset of facial puffiness has a link with fluid and sodium retention.


Since Nephrotic Syndrome patients’ swelling is due to protein leakage or fluid and sodium retention, the treatment should be able to deal with this problem from these two aspects.

Take diuretic or prednisone. Diuretics can prompt kidneys to eliminate more fluid, so as to reduce fluid retention, while prednisone is good to inhibit protein leakage and ease proteinuria.

Control the intake of fluid and sodium. This is needed to reduce fluid and sodium retention, beneficial to ease patients’ swelling.

Supplement high-quality protein. Through supplementing high-quality protein into the body, patients’ plasma colloid osmotic pressure can increase to some extent. Lean meat, egg, milk and fish all belong to high-quality protein.

Repair damaged glomerular filtrating structure. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is one innovative therapy that can help nourish damaged glomeruli and prompt the self-healing ability of impaired kidney cells. Finally, more and more glomeruli recover to work again.

As kidneys can filter blood and keep protein in the body normally, facial puffiness will be eased spontaneously. To get more suggestions about facial puffiness and Nephrotic Syndrome treatment, you can leave a message below or email to
