Natural Remedies for Swollen Eyes in IgA Nephropathy

Natural Remedies for Swollen Eyes in IgA NephropathyI am diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy and now I have swelling below my eyes. How can I treat that?Is there any natural remedy? This is a question we get from a IgA Nephropathy patient yesterday. Swollen eyes is not rare in IgA Nephropathy and here we will introduce several natural remedies that can help to control this symptom well.

How is swollen eyes caused IgA Nephropathy?

Before giving introduction about the natural remedy, we will firstly introduce how swollen eyes is caused by IgA Nephropathy.

IgA Nephropathy is a kidney problem associated with immune disorder. It can cause many physical discomforts or clinical manifestations. Swollen eyes is just one of the visible symptoms of IgA Nephropathy and in medicine, patients suffer from this illness mainly due to severe protein leakage.

Protein is a nutrient that can be found in every part of our body. Normally, while it flow through kidney, it can be preserved in the body. However, in IgA Nephropathy, as kidney structure is severely damaged, which makes kidney fail to stop protein, as a result of which, protein leak into urine and finally get out of our body. Protein plays an important role for plasma osmotic pressure. When masses of protein are lots through urine, plasma osmotic pressure decreases. Under such a condition, fluid get to body tissues, leading to swelling. There are loose tissues around the eyes, so swelling appears easily in eyes.

Well, what are the natural remedies for swollen eyes in IgA Nephropathy?

To stop the further deterioration of swelling, IgA Nephropathy patients need to:

1. Limit fluid intake: High fluid consumption will aggravate swelling and increase kidney burden, so IgA Nephropathy patients need to adjust fluid intake according to their specific illness condition.

2. Reduce sodium intake: High sodium level in blood will keep much more fluid in the body, which also leads to worsening of kidney condition and swollen eyes. Therefore, a low-sodium diet is also needed for IgA Nephropathy patients and this usually need them to have a low-salt diet.

3. Proper protein intake: protein is the basic of life, but high protein intake will aggravate protein leakage, which can lead to worsening of swollen eyes. Therefore, figuring out how much protein is needed every days is also very important.

Lastly, by the above natural remedies, swollen eyes can be alleviated, but if we want to remove this symptom permanently, we need to treat IgA Nephropathy by strengthening kidney and stopping protein leakage. Only when the real cause of swelling is removed, can the problem be solved fundamentally.
