Leg Swelling in Stage 4 Kidney Disease and Diabetes

2014-03-27 11:04

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a serious long-term complication of diabetes. As renal function declines, a myriad of symptoms will appear. Leg swelling is commonly seen in stage 4 kidney disease caused by diabetes.

Leg swelling in diabetes induced stage 4 kidney disease

Glomerulonephritis is a common long-term complication of diabetes. It is a kidney disorder, where glomeruli become inflamed and scarred.

Glomeruli are the basic functional and structural units of kidneys. Each kidney is composed of hundreds of glomeruli. In right condition, these glomeruli can filter out waste products from body and meanwhile keep the useful substances in body.

However, Diabetes can cause inflammation and scarring of glomeruli. As glomeruli become impaired, their filtering ability and barrier function will be involved adversely.

In stage 4 kidney disease caused by diabetes, the kidneys are impaired severely. As a result, a large amount of protein will leak into urine.

Leg swelling in diabetes induced stage 4 kidney disease is mainly attributed to two factors. One is leakage of protein in urine and another cause is fluid retention in body.

Management of leg swelling in diabetes induced stage 4 kidney disease

As the direct cause of leg swelling is leakage of protein in urine and fluid retention, to control the disorder, a treatment should be applied to control them. A low-protein diet and restricted fluid intake can help relieve the condition. ACE inhibitors can lower blood pressure and also are effective in lowering the protein level in urine.

However, to control leg swelling in diabetes kidney disease, a treatment should be applied to reverse the impaired kidney structure. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will stimulate the self-regenerating and self-repairing of the impaired glomeruli. If renal function can be improved, leg swelling in diabetes induced stage 4 kidney disease will be controlled.
