Is Lung Edema (Pulmonary Edema) in Renal Failure Dangerous

2013-01-19 16:10

Lung edema( pulmonary edema) is often seen in advanced renal failure. How does it occur? Is it dangerous?

Healthy kidneys can function to filter blood and remove extra fluids and wastes from body. When your kidneys fail to work, excessive fluid can build up in body, leading to lung edema. This condition causes fluid to fill the alveoli instead of air, preventing oxygen from being absorbed into your bloodstream. This problem can cause shortness of breath and you even can not fall on back. Serious lung edema may make people lose chance of getting a kidney transplant. Therefore, it is important for the patients with Kidney Failure to correct the serious condition.

Dialysis known as artificial kidney and is given to remove excess fluids and wastes from blood. However, in some cases, even the dialysis is done, the fluid formation in the lungs does not stop. Aside from dialysis, diuretics should also be used to keep the fluid levels controlled and high-salt foods should be removed from diet completely to reduce retention of fluids in body. These measures can relieve lung edema to some extent. However, dialysis is not a cure for renal failure nor improve renal function. Lung edema may become more and more serious.

As mentioned above, lung edema occurs when kidney fail to remove fluids from body. Therefore, the goal of the treatment is to restore the impaired kidney structure and improve the renal function. Chinese medicine can be used to treat renal failure along with lung edema. The effective medicine ingredients can activate the self-repairing system of the kidneys to restore the the impaired kidney structure and improve renal function. If the kidneys can be restored well and have an improvement in the excretory ability, excessive fluids in body will be removed from body by kidneys. Therefore, lung edema will recover and also no more fluids formation will occur in lung or other body parts.
