Swelling is caused by retention of water and sodium, which means the excessive water and sodium can not be filtered out from our body. For our healthy people, if we drink much water, our urination will correspondingly increase, because urine volume has a close relationship with the intake of water. When we drink water, most of the fluid will finally get into our bladder through the filtration of glomeruli and later these fluids will be excreted by us. As for salt, we all know salt is abundant in sodium, when we ingest some salts, some of sodium contained by salt will be absorbed by our body to meet the demands, and the rest of sodium will be discharged with our urine. Glomerulus is the major renal intrinsic cell of our kidney and they have filtration ability, so our kidneys play its function of filtration.What Treatments Are Available for Stage 4 CKD
For patients with Chronic Kidney Disease, their renal function decrease, so their kidneys can not give a full play about their filtration function. When renal damage develops to a degree, excessive water and sodium can not be filtered out due to the necrosis of most of the glomeruli, leading to the accumulation of them outside of cells. Gradually, with the increase of water and sodium beside the cells, swelling will appear. Thereby, for patients with swelling symptom, they should avoid ingesting too much water and salt, or their disease will be aggravated.Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy for CKD Hot Compress Therapy for Kidney Disease
