In addition, protein leakage in urine is also a possible cause of feet swelling in kidney disease. Kidneys can prevent the protein into urine as the holes of filters are small. However, in some cases of kidney disease, the diseased kidneys can not prevent the protein from leaking into urine. Protein in blood vessels can hold fluid normally. If the level of protein in blood declines, proteins can not hold all fluid in blood vessels. As a result, the leakage of protein in urine will cause fluid to filter into subcutaneous tissues, thus resulting in feet swelling in kidney disease.
