What Can Cause the Swelling Of Stomach For Patients With CKDWhat can cause the swelling of stomach for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD)? Many people who have chronic kidney disease do not know it, because the early signs can be very subtle. However, for people at any stage of kidney disease, knowledge is power. Knowing the symptoms of kidney disease can help you get the treatment you need to feel your best.

1. What can cause the swelling of stomach?

A wide variety of medical conditions can cause edema, including kidney, liver and heart disease. In kidney disease, swelling is caused when failing kidneys do not remove extra fluid, which builds up in your body. Swelling usually occurs in the legs, ankles, feet, face, and/or hands and then spreads to your whole body including your stomach.

2. How to treat swelling of stomach?

Minimize sodium intake

High levels of sodium may worsen swelling so avoid consuming foods with lots of sodium. Usually kidney disease patients need to avoid canned food, processed food, pickles and fast foods. Cooking your own food fresh is a good way to avoid eating too much salt. Restaurants tend to use a lot of salt to pack their food with flavor, but that can take a toll when it comes to bloating.


Diuretics can discharge excess fluid out of the body through increasing kidney output. Besides western medications, some Chinese herbs also have diuretic properties such as dandelion root, nettle leaf, saliva and corn silk, etc. These herbs can help alleviate swelling effectively without side effects.

Chinese medicines in our hospital

Diet and diuretics help treat swelling superficially but our Chinese medicines can treat swelling from the root. The active ingredients in Chinese medicines can come to kidney lesion directly with the help of osmosis device and osmosis penetrant. Through expanding blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing necessary nutrients, Chinese medicines can repair injured kidneys and improve kidney function. When kidney function is improved, it can discharge excess fluid from the body so as to alleviate swelling radically.
