Henoch-Schönlein Purpura: Why are My Feet Swelling

Henoch-Schönlein Purpura: Why are My Feet SwellingHenoch-Schönlein Purpura (HSP) is a form of vasculitis that affects the small arterial vessels, mostly common in the skin, gastrointestinal tract and the kidneys. A person may present feet swelling if Henoch-Schönlein Purpura has caused kidney problem, known as Purpura Nephritis.

Generally speaking, people with Henoch-Schönlein Purpura often have low immunity or disordered immune system. In this case, the virus or bacteria can easily invade into their body. In response, the body will generate antibodies to fight against the invaders. With immune dysfunction, the antibodies fail to function normally but combine with the virus or bacteria, forming antigen-antibody immune complexes.

These immune complexes will circulate in the blood and get lodged in the kidneys, causing kidney inflammation. The renal filtration ability will be damaged, and massive proteins will get leaked into the urine.

On the one hand, as a result of massive protein loss in urine, there is reduced serum blood albumin. In this condition, a reduction of fluid in the blood vessels occurs. Then the kidneys will attempt to retain salt, and fluid moves into the interstitial spaces, thereby causing swelling or edema of the body.

One the other hand, inflammatory response induced by immune complexes will impair the kidney function. Due to a limitation in the kidneys' ability to excrete sodium into the urine, people with Purpura Nephritis will develop swelling if their intake of sodium exceeds the ability of their kidneys to get rid of the sodium.

In order to eliminate feet swelling with Henoch-Schönlein Purpura, it is essential to stop the protein loss and repair the damaged kidney function. For natural remedies that can help us achieve these effects, you can Email us at or leave a message in the below for more information.
