Puffy Eyes and Swollen Legs in Diabetic Nephropathy,Micro-Chinese Medicine OsmotherapySome of patients may suffer from puffy eyes and swollen legs in Diabetic Nephropathy. Based on this point, they will be curious that what causes puffy eyes and swollen legs and how to treat the condition effectively. Please go on reading this article.

What causes puffy eyes and swollen legs in Diabetic Nephropathy?

Diabetic nephropathy is one of the severe complications of diabetes. Long-term high blood sugar causes blood flow slowly and damages blood vessels. It reduces blood volume to kidneys, causing kidney ischemia and anoxia. In this case, the kidney nephrons would be damaged.

When the small blood vessels in the kidney (glomeruli), which filter wastes from the blood, become inflamed and damaged, large amount of protein leaks from the damaged blood vessels into urine. The plasma colloid osmotic pressures decreases and then blood flows out into the space of tissues, resulting in swelling in the legs and ankles.

How can patients do to treat puffy eyes and swollen legs in diabetic nephropathy effectively?

Either puffy eyes or swollen legs are all caused by damaged glomeruli. Therefore, key point of treatment should focus on mending these damaged nephrons and tissues. Common western medicines can only relieve symptoms temporarily but cannot solve the underlying problem. Considering the treatment efficiency, we recommend you to accept systematic TCM treatments.

Medicated Bath: It combines medicine soup and hot water together. Patients immerse into the hot water for about 40-50 minutes. The hot water can open the pore of skin. Through sweat gland, the active ingredients of Chinese medicines can enter into kidney lesions via blood flow. It can relieve renal ischemia and anoxia state.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: It is an external application used on bilateral Shenshu acupoints. With the help of osmotic device, the effective ingredients can permeate into kidney lesions directly, expanding blood vessels, fighting against inflammation and coagulation, and degrading extracellular matrixes. Therefore, blood can be purified and glomeruli can be repaired effectively.
