What Else Can We Do to Bring Edema Down for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Question: My husband was recently diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. His blood sugar was high and was treated with insulin. His blood pressure was also extremely high and is being managed with high blood pressure medicines. He is also taking a steroid for fluid retention in his legs and feet. His blood pressure and blood sugar are now within normal ranges. But he is still retaining fluid in his legs and feet. What else can we do to bring edema down in his legs and feet?

What Else Can We Do to Bring Edema Down for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsAnswer: Edema is a typical symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome. It results from massive protein leaking into the urine and kidney function impairment. Both high blood sugar level and high blood pressure can cause further kidney damage. From the above, we can see that you have controlled blood sugar and blood pressure into the normal ranges. Now what you should do is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Only in this way can you bring down edema thoroughly.

-Medicated Full Bath

This therapy is to immerse kidney patients into the diluted medicated soup. It helps open your skin pores so that waste, toxins and fluid can come out of your body. It can also increases your urine output. When excess fluid is removed from the blood, edema is relieved. This therapy can also dilate blood vessels and speed up blood circulation to increase blood flow into the kidneys, which helps kidney self-healing.

-Enema Therapy

This therapy is to infiltrate the medicine that helps bowl movement into intestinal tract. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, intestinal tract is associated with lung. If your intestinal tract works normally, lung function will also be enhanced. Enhanced lung function helps improve kidney function and expel fluid and toxins from your body.

There are also many other therapies, such as hot compress therapy, circle therapy, steam therapy, medicated foot bath, moxibustion, etc. They can set up a good blood environment for kidneys to repair themselves. After a period of treatment, your kidneys regain their ability. Moreover, they can strengthen your immune system so as to reduce relapse frequency.
