How to Manage Swelling in Legs for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

How to Manage Swelling in Legs for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsNephrotic Syndrome is one common kidney disorder that can appear at any age especially in children. For patients with Nephrotic Syndrome, swelling is one typical symptom. If you have this disease and swelling in legs, patients should take some therapies to manage this problem actively.

The causes of swelling in legs for Nephrotic Syndrome patients

The main cause of swelling is protein leakage. When kidney filtering structure is damaged, kidneys fail to keep protein and some other nutrients in the body successfully. Protein leakage induces low plasma protein osmotic pressure, so excessive amount of fluid retains in loose tissues including legs easily.

Kidneys are excretory organs, and the most basic kidney function is to remove extra fluid. When kidneys fail to remove extra fluid from the body effectively, swelling will occur in some regions such as legs, ankles, feet, face, and so on.
