Membranous Nephropathy with Swelling and Foamy Urine

2014-01-21 11:05

Membranous nephropathy is a kidney disorder in which kidney function declines gradually. Some patients may not notice symptoms in early stage. However, as the disease progresses, the patients may experience swelling and foamy urine. How to control these conditions  and stop renal function decline?

Swelling and foamy urine in membranous nephropathy

The general cause of membranous nephropathy is autoimmune disorder. As the immune system fails to function normally, the autoantibodies will attack the glomeruli, thus resulting in inflammation and thickness of glomeruli. In right condition, the glomeruli can filter out waste products and meanwhile keep the useful substances in blood.

However, in membranous nephropathy, the glomeruli fail to function properly. As a result, a lot of proteins will leak through glomeruli and end up in urine.

Protein in urine is one cause of swelling in membranous nephropathy. Protein can hold fluid in blood vessels in right condition. However, the leakage of protein from blood will decrease the level of protein in blood. The left protein in blood is not enough to hold the fluid. As a result, a large amount of fluid will filter into subcutaneous tissue, thus leading to swelling. In addition, if the kidneys are damaged significantly, they will fail to filter out the fluid from body. It also can contribute to swelling.

Foamy urine in membranous nephropathy is due to loss of heavy protein in urine.

Management of swelling and foamy urine in membranous nephropathy

Immunosuppressive agents are commonly prescribed to control these conditions. They can suppress the abnormal immune response to relieve the conditions. However, the drugs can not cure them.

To control foamy urine and swelling in membranous nephropathy fundamentally, a treatment should be applied to restore the impaired glomeruli. The patients can attain the treatment goal with Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy. It can improve renal function by restoring your impaired kidney structure fundamentally.
