What causes fluid problem for Nephrotic Syndrome?
When you have Nephrotic Syndrome, massive protein leaks out of the body so as to cause hypoproteinemia and low plasma colloid osmotic pressure. When the pressure decreases from 3.3～4kPa to 0.8～1.1kPa, the fluid in blood vessels shifts into interstitial fluid with high permeability so as to cause edema.
Another reason of edema is retention of water and sodium. With the shift of plasma fluid, ADH increases which can make the renal tubule absorb more water. Beside, when renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) is activated, secondary hyperaldosteronism occurs so as to make renal tubule reabsorb sodium and inhibit the production of natriureticfactor. As a result, water and sodium retain in the body so as to worsen edema.
How to treat fluid problem for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?
Diuretics are often described to remove fluid from the body. Steroids are also used to reduce proteinuria so as to ease edema. Besides, ACE inhibitors and ARBs are also used to lower blood pressure so as to decrease the protein leakage.
But these medicine can only help you control symptoms. Once you stop the medicine or reduce their dosage, edema will come back again. To solve the problem from the root, you should repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can inhibit kidney inflammation, improve blood circulation, stop kidney fibrosis and provide essential substances so as to help your kidney self-healing. With this treatment, not only fluid problems disappear, but also other symptoms are controlled, such as proteinuria and hypoproteinemia.
