The primary function of the kidneys is to filter the blood and remove excess fluid from it. When kidney function is impaired, kidneys will filter less blood. As a result, some fluid that should be removed from the blood will build up in the body, which can lead to retaining fluid.

For renal disease patients, retaining fluid means their kidneys can not filter blood as well as they did before. Under such a condition, not only fluid, but also toxins that should be removed by kidney will build up in the blood. These toxic substances are very harmful, because they may reach at any part of patient’s body and damage any of their organs. Therefore, for renal disease patients who have retaining fluid, they should take effective treatment as soon as possible to improve kidney function, so as to protect residual kidney tissues and other internal organs from being damaged by the harmful substances.
