What Can I Do with Bloated Tummy and Nephrotic Syndrome

What Can I Do with Bloated Tummy and Nephrotic Syndrome“I am a Nephrotic Syndrome patient and now my tummy is bloated. What can I do?” Swelling is one of the most common asked questions by Nephrotic Syndrome patients. Now let’s a have a quick look.

What causes bloated tummy for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

-Water and sodium retention

The damaged kidneys can not remove water and sodium from the blood effectively. Water and sodium retention causes edema.


For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, their glomeruli are damaged so as to allow a large amount of protein to leak from the blood, leading to low plasma oncotic pressure. And then fluid moves from the vascular space into the interstitium, contributing to swelling.

When the water retention occurs in the tummy, it will cause bloated tummy.

Ways to help you relieve bloated tummy

-You should limit the intake of salt. If the swelling is very severe, salt-free food is needed.

-For children with Nephrotic Syndrome, there is need to limit the intake of protein, for their body need a lot of protein to grow. But for adult patients, they should control the protein intake in case that too much protein intake worsens proteinuria.

-Diuretics are the most common used drugs for edema, which can flush out water from the body.

-Severe bloated tummy can also be eased by drainage.

The fundamental way is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can combine with immune complexes, split them and remove them from the kidneys so as to eliminate kidney inflammation. This therapy can also expand blood vessels and block blood clotting to increase blood flow into the kidneys to help them recover. Moreover, it supplements the essential nutrients and stop kidney fibrosis. After a period of treatment, the damaged kidneys regain their ability and then fluid can be removed from the body.
