Purpura nephritis is a kidney problem secondary to purpura. Kidney is a organ with function of excretion of excess fluid, wastes and excess electrolyte, regulation of blood pressure, secretion of hormone and enzyme and so on. In normal condition, excessive fluid and sodium can be discharged through kidneys and when kidney function is affected, they build up in the body which can cause feet swelling.
