What To Do For Swelling from Nephrotic Syndrome

2016-05-08 06:41

 Swelling from Nephrotic Syndrome can be treated well by Chinese medicine treatments.All Nephrotic Syndrome patients are bothered by whole body swelling. Well then, what to do for swelling in Nephrotic Syndrome? Here our expert will send you some suggestion.

First, what causes swelling in Nephrotic Syndrome?

1. Decreased plasma colloid osmotic pressure

Colloid osmotic pressure includes crystal osmotic pressure and colloid osmotic pressure. Crystal osmotic pressure mainly comes from crystal osmotic pressure and colloid osmotic pressure comes from protein. In Nephrotic Syndrome, since plasma losses lots of protein, hypoproteinemia which will cause decreased plasma colloid osmotic pressure. When it decreases to 0.8-1.1kPa from 3.3-4kPa, fluid in blood plasma will move to high permeability of the interstitial fluid. In this condition, swelling will occur.

2. Decreased effective blood volume

Decreased effective blood volume will make renal tubular reabsorb more fluid, reabsorb more sodium, prevent the generation of natriuretic factor so that kidneys will excrete less sodium. In this condition, fluid-sodium retention will worsen swelling.

Second, what is the treatment for swelling in Nephrotic Syndrome?

As for Nephrotic Syndrome patients,they should increase protein intake moderately but it is not good for patients with azotemia. Patients with swelling and high blood pressure should limit sodium. If swelling is serious, fluid intake should be limited. If necessary, plasma and albumin infusion can increase serum protein and reduce swelling.

More importantly, the radical treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome patients should repair injured kidneys and improve renal function. Western medicines can not achieve this purpose whereas Chinese medicines can do this. In our hospital-Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, China, our experts recommend a series of Chinese medicine treatments including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Medicinal Soup, Mai kang Mixture and Moxibustion Therapy, etc. They can dilate blood vessels, improve blood circulation, prevent inflammation and coagulation, degrade extracellular matrix and provide nutrients. This can provide you a good blood environment for improving renal function. When your renal function is improved, your symptoms like swelling, proteinuria, weakness, fatigue and so on can all be relieved from the root. However, these treatments are only available in China so foreign patients need to come to China for treatment.
