What to Do for Swollen Legs due to IgA Nephropathy

What to Do for Swollen Legs due to IgA NephropathyIgA Nephropathy is a kidney disease which is triggered by IgA depositing in the kidneys. In order to cleanse these IgA, your body will cause inflammatory reaction in the kidneys. Over time, there is kidney function impairment. IgA Nephropathy can lead to many symptoms, among which swelling is not uncommon. What to do for swollen legs due to IgA Nephropathy?

Learn what causes swollen legs first and then follow the remedy to the case.

Two factors may cause swollen legs for IgA Nephropathy patients. One is massive proteinuria. When there is damage to the glomerular filtration barrier, protein leaks into the urine, resulting in the decrease of plasma colloid osmotic pressure. And then the fluid flows into the tissue space. The other cause is kidney function impairment, resulting in the water retention. Due to gravity, fluid gathers in the lower part of your body easily.

Treatment for swollen legs due to IgA Nephropathy

If your legs are swelling, you should have a good rest until the edema disappears. If the swelling is very severe, diuretics are often prescribed by your doctors to remove the excess fluid from your body. Besides, you should treat the underlying causes and avoid this symptom occurring again.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a treatment which can repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. This therapy can expand blood vessels and block blood clotting to improve blood circulation and ensure that there is enough oxygen and nutrient to be transported to the kidneys. It can also restrain the inflammatory reaction in the kidneys to prevent further damage. Besides, it degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. Long-term treatment can help you regulate your abnormal immune system. With the improvement of immunity and kidney function, your edema disappears and you can live a relatively normal life.

Swollen legs should be treated as early as possible. If you have any other questions, please consult online doctor.
