Kidney is an important organ which is responsible for removing extra water from the body effectively. When kidneys are damaged, water can not be discharged but instead accumulate in the patients’ body. What more, renal failure often cause proteinuria and low serum albumin which can lower plasma colloid osmotic pressure and cause more fluid being filtered into tissues from the blood vessels, resulting in swelling. Due to gravity, swelling usually appears on patients’ legs and feet.
Patients who suffer from renal failure will experience mineral and electrolyte disorders. Muscle cramp will also affect the patient’s leg. In chronic kidney failure, the production of vitamin D3 is decreased which promote absorption by gastrointestinal tract, thus reducing absorption of calcium and resulting in blood calcium. In moderate condition, patients with low calcium will suffer from numbness and paining sensations, while in severe condition, patients will suffer from muscle cramps.
