Pitting Edema and Extreme Thirst for Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease

Pitting Edema and Extreme Thirst for Stage 3 Chronic Kidney DiseaseIn Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease, patients have 30%~59% of kidney function. In this case, fluid retention or protein leakage may appear, resulting in pitting edema. In order to manage edema, patients must need to control their fluid intake that induces extreme thirst easily. Today, you can learn how to manage pitting edema and extreme thirst for patients with Stage 3 CKD.

Kidneys are excretory organs that are in charge of filtering blood and removing extra fluid, waste products and toxins. When kidney function is less than 50%, it can’t remove waste products and keep nutrition in the body effectively. Finally, fluid retention in the loose tissues causes pitting edema. Besides, protein leakage is another trigger.

In order to alleviate pitting edema, patients need to control their fluid intake, so they are more likely to experience extreme thirst.

How to control these problems for Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease patients?

According to the above causes, patients should take the following methods to manage these symptoms.

- Limit the sodium intake and get away from salty foods

- Pay attention to hidden liquid foods such as soup, ice and watermelon

- Make your blood sugar in good control, if your kidney disease is caused by diabetes, because elevated blood glucose can worsen patients’ thirst

- Take some medications such as diuretics and ACEi to treat pitting edema timely as doctors’ guidance

- Drink cold beverage or water

In addition to the above remedies to manage pitting swelling and extreme thirst, patients should also seek some therapies that can improve patients’ kidney function and reverse their kidney damage successfully. As long as kidneys can do their work normally, they don’t need to worry any more.
