Swelling is one typical symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome, while swelling is fluid retention. In this case, patients’ eyes, ankles, feet, legs, and stomach may be involved in fluid retention. Therefore, patients should take some therapies to manage patients’ fluid retention.
Nephrotic Syndrome is one common kidney disorder in which kidney filtration membrane is damaged. When kidneys are unable to eliminate extra fluid and sodium. Then, patients need to take some therapies to remove extra fluid and sodium and repair damaged kidney filtration membrane. According to these requirements, we would like to recommend the following therapies.
- Drink correct amount of water and follow a low-sodium diet plan
For patients with Nephrotic Syndrome, it is necessary to limit their fluid intake and follow a low-sodium diet plan. This can help manage fluid retention and reduce the burden on kidneys. Besides, patients should also pay attention to protein intake and high-quality protein supplement. This can help increase plasma protein osmotic colloid pressure.
- Take correct medicines
In clinic, some medicines can stimulate kidneys to produce more urine, taking away more waste products, fluid and toxins. Diuretic is one common medicine that can help ease swelling or fluid retention easily.
In severe cases, patients may be suggested to do dialysis. Dialysis is one effective therapy to remove extra fluid from the body. Also, patients can also take some alternative therapies such as plasma exchange, immune adsorption, hemofiltration, and so on.
This therapy is one treatment that can help improve kidney functioning tissues and boost patients’ overall health condition. As long as impaired kidney cells come back to normal, patients don’t need to worry about their fluid retention any more.
