Treatments for Fluid Retention in Kidney Failure

Treatments for Fluid Retention in Kidney FailureKidney Failure is one serious disease that makes kidneys lose their ability to filter blood and remove extra fluid. Then, patients will suffer from fluid retention, so they should take some treatments to manage this problem.

In most cases, fluid retention won’t cause severe problems, if extra fluid collects in legs, feet, ankles and face. However, in severe cases, it will accumulate in lungs, inducing pulmonary edema. Then, patients will have shortness of breath or life-threatening problems.

In order to manage kidney failure patients’ fluid retention or swelling, kidney experts here give out several managements.

1. Control fluid intake

When kidneys are unable to produce enough urine, patients need to control their fluid intake including hidden fluid intake like soup and drink. In the same time, it is necessary to follow a low-sodium diet plan.

2. Increase fluid excretion amount

In addition to kidneys, skin and intestinal tract are two excretory organs. If more fluid can be eliminated out through skin or intestinal tract, fluid retention will be alleviated to some extent. For example, Medicated Bath can help remove more fluid through sweating, while Enema Therapy can make fluid removed out through intestinal tract.

3. Dialysis

Dialysis is one effective therapy to take away extra fluid from the body. In severe cases, kidney failure patients should accept this treatment or alternative therapies like plasma exchange, immune adsorption, hemofiltration, etc, immediately.

4. Improve kidney condition

If patients still have chance to improve their kidney function, it is the best method for kidney failure patients to increase their kidney filtration rate. To achieve this goal, patients should find out whether they still have this chance.
