Why Is Face Puffy in CKD Stage 3BWhen diagnosed with Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) has moderate kidney damage and this stage is further broken into two: Stage 3A and Stage 3B. In the latter stage, people are more likely to suffer from edema (Swelling). Some patients put forward the question: why is face puffy in CKD Stage 3B?

As we all know, our healthy kidneys are important filtering organs, which are packed with numerous functions. However, for a person with stage 3B kidney disease, it means his kidney damage has progressed into the moderate level, which the glomerular filtration rate is between 30 and 44. In this condition, kidneys has lost some functions and ability to balance the internal environment.

Actually, puffy or swelling face is commonly seen clinical feature of edema attributes to imbalanced water, electrolyte and acid-base caused by renal damage. The healthy kidneys are responsible to regulate water in the body, keep electrolyte and acid-base balance as well, while for the kidneys with moderate damage, they may fail to function adequately. Consequently, excess water will build up in the body tissues, leading to swelling. And the extra sodium can not expel from the boy which can aggravate edema. In addition, Stage 3 CKD is marked by moderate decrease of renal function and it can cause lots of symptoms like proteinuira. Heave loss of protein through urine lead to low content of plasma protein while water-sodium retention comes into play, thus causing such condition.

Through the above analysis, we can clearly see that why does puffy face occur in Stage 3B CKD. To be frank, stage 3 kidney disease is the best time to take effective treatment. In this stage, some medications like diuretics can help control some symptoms but it is a pity that they can’t treat disease from the underlying causes. To get rid of swelling totally, we do recommend our natural remedies like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, etc. More detailed info, please welcome to mail to *** or leave a message below directly.
