Edema is a common symptom of kidney disease. It worsens with the progression of the disease. Many patients will suffer from severe edema when the illness progresses into kidney failure. Then how to deal with severe edema in kidney failure?
How does edema occur in kidney disease?
The healthy kidneys are in charge of filtering the waste products in blood as well as preserving the essential substance. Protein is the useful thing to our body and kidneys will keep them in the blood. But in kidney failure, kidneys are not able to preserve them. They will leak out and be discharged though urine. Protein in blood can help keep fluids in bloodstream. Once protein is leaked out, fluids will spread into other tissues spaces, causing edema.
The damaged kidneys cannot filter the extra minerals and fluids in blood. So there will be water-sodium retention, which is a main cause of edema.
How to deal with severe edema in kidney failure?
- You are suggested to control water intake and sodium intake to prevent water-sodium retention. For how much water you should take, you should consult your doctor or the online doctor according to your illness condition.
