What Can Reduce Body Swelling due to Nephrotic Syndrome

What Can Reduce Body Swelling due to Nephrotic SyndromeSwelling is a typical symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome. What can reduce body swelling due to Nephrotic Syndrome? Many Nephrotic Syndrome patients ask such a question. Go on reading, let’s learn more information about this topic.

What causes body swelling for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, there are two causes for body swelling:

-Massive protein leakage. It does not only cause hypoproteinemia and swelling, but also kidney fibrosis so as to speed up kidney failure.

-When you have hypoproteinemia, your plasma colloid osmotic pressure declines. And then fluid in tissue cells shift to extracellular, leading to edema.

What can reduce body swelling due to Nephrotic Syndrome?

-The direct way is to use diuretics, which can increase urine output so as to relieve body swelling.

- Albumin can also be used to supplement the lost protein. But if you use massive albumin, it causes high filtration of kidneys and high metabolism of renal tubules so as to cause kidney fibrosis.

-The key treatment for body swelling due to Nephrotic Syndrome is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Micro-Chines Medicine Osmotherapy can help you reduce protein leakage from the following aspects:

1. This therapy can inhibit the production of immune complexes and other renal toxic substances which damage the filtration membrane of glomeruli.

2. It can also suppress the protein metabolism in glomeruli and reduce the production of ammonia so as to decrease the damage to kidneys.

3. It can repair the damaged filtration membrane by setting up a good blood environment.

4. It can dilate blood vessels to reduce the inner pressure of glomeruli so as to decrease protein leakage caused by high blood pressure.

What can reduce body swelling due to Nephrotic Syndrome? Besides medical treatment, you should pay attention to your diet, for example, too much salt intake worsens edema. With the help of online doctor, you can know more information.
