Can Chronic Kidney Disease Cause Pulmonary Edema  Chronic Kidney Disease refers to a progressive disease about gradual decline of renal function. And edema is a common symptom for kidney disease patients. And it may appear at any part of the body. Well then, can kidney disease cause pulmonary edema?

The answer is Yes, and pulmonary edema happens when increased pressure in the blood vessels in the lungs causes them to fill up with fluid, making it hard to breath.

How does chronic kidney disease cause pulmonary edema?

As the mentioned above, chronic kidney disease is the progressive loss of renal function. In normal condition, our healthy kidneys have multiple functions and one of leading functions is in charge of discharge excessive water from the body. For chronic kidney disease patients, their kidney issues are damaged severely, kidney function decreases. Along with decline of renal function, the damaged kidney can not discharge the extra fluid successfully. Consequentiality, more and more fluid will build up in the body, leading to edema. When extra fluid flows into lungs, the pulmonary edema will occur.

Pulmonary edema is also a common complication of atherosclerotic disease which is a common complication of chronic kidney disease. As the blood vessels that supply nutrients to the heart tissue progressively narrow, the heart muscle may not receive enough oxygen and nutrients to pump efficiently and adequately. This can limit the heart's ability to pump the blood it receives from the lungs to the rest of the body. This backup causes an increase in pressure within the blood vessels of the lung, resulting in excess fluid leaking from the blood vessels into lung tissue.
