Swelling and Stage 3 CKD

Swelling refers to condition where water retains and expand tissues in certain area. Stage 3 CKD is characterized by moderate kidney damage. It means that many nephrons which have the function of filtration and removing excessive fluid are damaged. As a result, wastes and water cannot be discharged adequately, building up in the body.

Proteinuria is another reason why swelling occurs. However, when glomeruli are damaged, they cannot hold back the protein, leading large amount of protein to leak out the body. As a result, the blood pressure increases, forcing the fluid to flow to the tissues, thus causing water retention, namely, swelling.

Is swelling in Stage 3 CKD serious?

Swelling can occur in many parts of the body, like eyes, faces, hands, legs or ankles. Generalized swelling is the most serious condition. In some cases, the swollen areas may be painful when you press them.
