What causes swelling for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

Nephrotic Syndrome is a kidney disorder that damages your glomeruli. This damage allows your glomeruli to leak massive protein. When you blood is protein deficiency, plasma colloid osmotic pressure decreases so that fluid flows to the tissue space, leading to swelling. At first, swelling may just appear on face, but with the deterioration of Nephrotic Syndrome, it appears in lower limbs or even abdomen. In such case, you should ease swelling quickly.

-The direct way to alleviate swelling is to use diuretics to remove the excessive fluid.

-It is necessary for you to supplement moderate protein into your plasma to recover plasma colloid osmotic pressure.

-You should also stop proteinuria. Steroids and immunosuppressants are the most common used medicine to inhibit kidney inflammation and stop protein leakage.

In order to reduce the side effects of western medicine, we often use Traditional Chinese Medicine together with those western medicines. In TCM, there is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Circle Therapy, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Acupuncture and Moxibustion, Mai Kang Composition and various Medical Soup, etc. Some of them can purify the blood. Some can remove stasis. Some can speed up blood circulation. Some can dilate blood vessels to increase blood flow into the kidneys. Some can decompose deposited immune complexes in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation. Some can degrade extracellular matrix to cease kidney fibrosis. After a period of treatment, your damaged kidneys can regain their ability and then swelling are alleviated.
