Some patients with stage 4 kidney disease may suffer from sever swelling. Do you have this symptom? Why would this happen? Is there a treatment for swelling? Follow me and find the answer about how to deal with swelling in stage 4 kidney disease.

Firstly, let’s study why swelling would occur with stage 4 kidney disease.

Stage 4 kidney disease is characterized by sever damage of kidney function. So the kidneys cannot work well to ensure the health of our body. Swelling happens with kidney is damaged. There are two main causes of swelling in stage 4 kidney disease.

One is water-sodium retention. The kidneys take charge of keeping balance of water and electrolyte. In stage 4, kidneys cannot well perform. So there will be extra water and electrolyte in blood. When extra sodium, which is one of the important electrolyte in our boy, is combined with water, water-sodium retention will happen. It will lead to swelling.

The other cause of swelling is protein loss. Besides keeping balance of water and sodium, kidneys also plays an important role in preserving protein in blood. While protein is the substance that can prevent water from leaking out into other tissues spaces. If kidneys are damaged, protein will leak out into urine. Therefore, there will be swelling when water flows to other tissues.

How to deal with swelling in stage 4 kidney disease?

Dialysis. Some patients with stage 4 kidney disease are treated with dialysis. Dialysis can help relieve swelling because it can help kidneys discharge the extra water and sodium out of the blood. But it cannot solve this problem radically. Dialysis has no effect on improving kidney function.

Chinese herbs. Chinese herbs have a remarkable effect on dealing with swelling in kidney disease. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the upgrade version of traditional Chinese herbs. It is the combination of the traditional herbs and the advanced machine. The herbs can be permeated into kidneys with an osmosis device. The herbs can improve the kidney lesions by repairing the damaged kidney cells. Once kidney cells are repaired, the water and sodium balance will be in order and protein will be kept in blood. So swelling will be eliminated.
