Edema Treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Edema Treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsSevere edema is a common symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome. At the first, it may appear in the loose part, such as eyelid and ankle. But severe edema may appear in your legs and the whole body. In the following, we list several edema treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. Hope it can help you.

First, let’s see what causes edema for Nephrotic Syndrome.

The main reason for edema is that massive protein leaks into the urine, resulting in the decline of plasma colloid osmotic pressure, so the fluid moves to the tissue space easily. Besides, the decrease of GFR leads to water and sodium retention.

Second, edema treatment.

To treat edema, you should control proteinuria and improve kidney function.


Diuretics are the common drugs to help your body remove the excess fluid. Steroids are the common drugs to inhibit kidney inflammation so as to reduce proteinuria. ACE inhibitors and ARB are also used to treat proteinuria by lowering blood pressure.

-Healthy lifestyle

In the daily, you should restrict the intake of sodium, sometimes you should avoid sodium when your edema is very severe. Besides, you should pay attention to the intake of protein. Too much protein intake can increase the workload of kidneys so as to worsen proteinuria. How much protein you can consume depends on the remaining kidney function.

-Improving kidney function

When your kidney function improves, the damaged kidneys can filter the excess fluid from the body and retain the protein in the body. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can expand blood vessels and block blood clotting to improve blood circulation. It can also inhibit kidney inflammation to prevent further damage. Moreover, it can degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis.
