Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-04-12 06:31

Swelling is a common complication of diabetes with high creatinine. This article will explain the cause of the condition and the ways to manage it.

Swelling due to diabetes and high creatinine

Nephrons are the basic functional units of kidneys. They are composed of glomeruli and renal tubule. Each kidney contains around one million nephrons. In right condition, the glomeruli can filter out the waste products and extra fluid from body. Meanwhile, the holes of glomeruli can keep the useful substances in body. Creatinine is a kind of small molecular substances and can pass through the holes of glomeruli. However, long-term Diabetes can cause extra strain on nephrons. When the kidneys fail to function well, the diseased kidneys become unable to filter blood normally. As a result, creatinine will build up in blood, leading to high creatinine. Meanwhile, the extra fluid will linger in body. Swelling will be the result.

Once the patients with diabetes experience high creatinine and swelling, Diabetic Nephropathy at least has developed into stage 4.

Management of swelling due to diabetes and high creatinine

To eliminate fluid retention in body, diuretic medicines are often prescribed. They can relieve swelling by increasing urine output. However, the drugs may cause adverse effects if they are used improperly. What’s more, diuretic medicines can not control the root cause of swelling.

To manage swelling due to diabetes and high creatinine, a treatment should be applied to reverse the impaired nephrons and enhance renal function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an effective treatment for diabetic nephropathy. This therapy can control both diabetes and kidney problem. Hence, swelling and the associated symptoms of diabetic nephropathy will be controlled fundamentally.
