Fluid Accumulation and Numbness with Stage 4 Renal Insufficiency

Fluid Accumulation and Numbness with Stage 4 Renal InsufficiencyStage 4 renal insufficiency refers to kidneys functioning at 15%~29%. As kidneys are unable to regulate fluid balance normally, extra fluid will accumulate in the body. Numbness may occur accompanied by fluid accumulation.

Fluid accumulation and numbness for Stage 4 CKD patients

Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) divides chronic kidney disease into 5 stages. The lower their GFR, the more serious their kidney condition. As kidneys are damaged severely in Stage 4 CKD, excessive amount of fluid will build up in some areas such as leg, feet, face, eyelid, abdomen, and so on. Fluid retention causes poor blood circulation in the affected area that triggers numbness easily.

How to alleviate these symptoms and complications effectively?

The underlying cause requires patients to reduce their fluid accumulation, improve their blood circulation and boost their kidney condition. If you happen to have this problem, you can learn whether you can get recovery from therapies listed below.

- Limit fluid and sodium intake: To prevent further fluid retention, patients should control their fluid intake and follow a low-sodium diet plan, which suggests patients to eat 2,000~3,000 mg of sodium every day.

- Use correct diuretics: Diuretic is the main medicine used to ease swelling, because it can stimulate kidneys to eliminate more fluid. According to patients’ illness condition, doctors can prescribe correct diuretics for their patients.

- Improve blood circulation: Medicated Bath, Hot Compress Therapy, Massage and Acupuncture are natural remedies for improving blood circulation without side effects. Therefore, many patients with stage 4 renal insufficiency and numbness would like to use these therapies to deal with their problems.

The above medicines and therapies can help ease patients’ fluid accumulation and numbness. However, if they want to get greater therapeutic effects, they should take some therapies that can help improve kidney function.
