Why Edema Occurs In Patient With Glomerular Nephritis

Why Edema Occurs In Patient With Glomerular NephritisEdema is a common symptom in patient with glomerular nephritis, and about 90% glomerular nephritis patients will have this symptom.

For patient who has mild edema, he may just have edema in his eyelids, or in his lower limbs. But for patient whose condition is severe, edema can appear in his whole body.

Why patient with glomerular nephritis has edema?

Edema is caused by tow major reasons, one is the retention of sodium and water, and the other is the massive loss of protein.

For patients whose edema is caused by the retention of water and sodium, this condition is more likely to appear in patient who is in the late stage of glomerular nephritis, which means patient’s kidney function has been severely damaged, and patient’s GFR is very low. Patient’s kidneys are not able to filter the excess fluid out from his body, so it will flow into patient’s tissue space.

For patients whose edema is caused by massive loss of protein, he can have very obvious edema. Protein is very important for regulating the osmotic pressure of blood, so when massive loss of protein appear, the osmotic pressure will decrease, and the fluid in blood vessel will flow into tissue space due to pressure difference, which will cause edema.

How to treat edema in patient with glomerular nephritis?

If patient’s edema is caused by massive loss of protein, patient should increase the protein amount in his blood, so the osmotic pressure can be recovered. And patient will need to increase his protein intake in his diet. Besides, dialysis is also an effective way to reduce the excess fluid in body.

On the other hand, protein loss is caused by kidney damage, so patient also needs to repair his kidney damage and improve his kidney function. Besides, for patients whose edema is caused by the retention of fluid and sodium, to treat his edema, his kidney function should also be improved.

Here Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is recommended. This therapy can transport the effective ingredients into the diseased area directly, which can promote the effect of medicines. As we know, Chinese medicine is good at improving patient’s body function to treat patient’s disease.
