To know treatment to leg edema, we should firstly have a look at what causes leg edema. And then we will put forward the corresponding treatment.

What causes leg edema for Diabetic Nephropathy

Exposed to high blood sugar for a long term, capillary permeability increases so that protein leaks, which in turn causes damage to capillary basement membrane, resulting in Diabetic Nephropathy.

Protein leakage will lead to the decrease of plasma colloid osmotic pressure. So fluid is retained in the tissue, which contributes to occurrence of edema.

Another reason is kidney impairment. Kidney has the function of regulating fluid and sodium balance. Once the kidney goes wrong, fluid and sodium can not be discharged out of body efficiently, resulting in edema.

Due to gravity, edema appears in the low part of body, such as leg.

Treatment for leg edema

To treat edema, we should control the leakage of protein. In western, corticosteroids is often used. Besides, diuretics are often used to help discharge water from body. But the side effects can not be ignored. Therefore, natural remedies are recommended.

What is more, it has the function of dilating blood vessels, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and degrading cytoplasmic matrix so as to improve kidney function.
