Chinese Therapy for Relieving Swelling for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsThe focal body swelling and or whole body swelling is a typical symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome. How to deal with this condition with Chinese therapy? If you have no idea about this topic, please read on.

Before telling the answer, we should have a well understanding about how does swelling occur in this kind of kidney disease. Actually, the appearance and severity of swelling is closely related to the severity of the hypoproteinemia. The large amount of proteinuria would lead to the hypoproteinemia. For nephrotic syndrome patients, since there is the decrease of the glomerular filtration rate, it creates a reduction in albumin (urine proteins). The kidneys receive a message that the body's blood supply is lacking volume, which triggers an attempt to retain salt to build more volume. The result is excess fluid being stored in tissue which causes swelling. In addition, swelling is also caused by the fluid retention and sodium retention, because the damaged kidney fail to regulate and keep the water and sodium balance.

Through the above analysis, we can see that the primary causes of swelling is the proteinuria due to the damaged kidney. Therefore, the treatment should also focus in improvement the renal function.

At our Beijing Tongshantang Hospital, China, Chinese Therapy is widely used to treat kidney disease. For example, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an external application of Chinese medicine which is a natural remedy for relieving swelling. Aim at the reason of proteinuria, we have four steps to reduce and stop the leakage of the protein. The first step is to inhibit the appearance of renal toxic substances which would damage the glomerular filtration barrier. The second step is to inhibit the protein catabolism in the body and local part of the glomerular so as to reduce the production of ammonia and block inflammation reaction of the kidney. The third step is to repair the damaged glomerular filtration barrier. And the fourth step is to reduce the glomerulus internal pressure. Fortunately, this Osmotherapy can achieve the mentioned therapeutic effects. Under the help osmosis device, the active ingredients of Chinese medicine can permeate into kidney lesion, thus achieving the goal of repairing kidney damage. As long as the kidney function comes back to normal, the swelling can disappear accordingly.
