Does Kidney Failure Cause Swollen Face

Does Kidney Failure Cause Swollen FaceKidney failure means patient’s kidney function is so low that fails to filtrate out the metabolic wastes adequately, and many metabolic disorders will appear at this point.

Many patients with kidney failure may find they have swollen face, which is a scaring condition. In fact, swollen face is caused by edema, which is a common symptom in patients with kidney disease.

Does Renal Failure cause swollen face?

As we know, kidney has the function of removing the excess fluid from our body, while Kidney Failure means patient’s kidney function is so low that causes a large amount of fluid accumulating in patient’s body.

When there is much excess fluid accumulating in patient’s body, patient will have edema easily. And swelling is more likely to appear in the thin skins of patient’s body, so patient’s face will become swollen more easily. Thereby, swollen face is very likely to be caused by kidney failure.

Why some patients have swelling without kidney failure?

Many patients can also have edema when they do not have kidney failure, and their swelling can be very serious. While on this occasion, patient’s edema is mainly caused by massive proteinuria.

Proteinuria plays an important role in regulating the osmotic pressure of blood flow, so when there is a large amount of protein losing through urine, the osmotic pressure will be reduced, and that will cause the fluid flow into the tissue space, which will also cause edema easily.

Sometimes, swollen face is caused by the two factors of kidney failure and massive proteinuria, which can cause more severe swelling in patient’s body.

How can swollen face be treated?

To treat edema, if patient has kidney failure, dialysis will be a necessary method to achieve that purpose. While if edema is caused by proteinuria, there will be many aspects should be considered.

There are some basic points in treating edema, and you can refer this article: How To Treat Renal Disease Patients’ Edema.
