Kidney Disease and Swollen Fingers and Toes

Kidney Disease and Swollen Fingers and ToesSwelling or edema is such a common symptom in kidney disease patients. The swollen area can be seen in the eyes, hands, finders, legs, ankles or toes.

Causes

Edema forms in patients with kidney disease for two reasons:

1. A heavy loss of protein in the urine

Large amount of protein in the urine ( over 3.0 grams in 24 hours) is called “proteinuria”. It always present in Nephrotic Syndrome. The leakage of protein leads to a reduction of blood volume. Therefore, the kidneys attempt to retain salt. As a consequence, fluid moves into the intestinal spaces, thus causing pitting edema.

2. Impaired kidney (renal) function

In this situation, kidney disease patients with impaired renal function develop swelling in the fingers an toes because of a limitation in the kidney’s ability to excrete sodium into the urine. The most severe situation is the patient with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) who requires dialysis. The salt balance is totally regulated by dialysis.

Treatment

1. Medicine

Diuretics may be the first step to relieve edema. The most potent diuretics are loop diuretics, including Lasix, Demadex, and Bumex. The dosage should be based on your own condition. Consult your doctor and he or she will give you some guidance.

One more thing you should note is that some diuretics may cause excessive loss of potassium in the urine. In that case, you are advised to take potassium supplements or eat some foods rich in potassium. You can consult our doctors online or email to kidney-symptoms@hotmail.com for suggestions.

2. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

This therapy is a hope for those who are suffering the side effects of oral medicines or not repose to medicines. Based on hundreds of Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCMs), it can expand blood vessels, prevent inflammation and degrade extracellular filtration. Thereby, this therapy is good for improving blood circulation and enhance kidney function. This is to help the kidneys remove excessive fluid naturally, thus relieving swelling.

As for you own illness conditions, you can get some guidance related to diet, exercise, medicines or some natural remedies. The online consultation service is free. Please remember to leave your email address, or phone number so that we can contact you and help you!

Our Treatment effect

It can make your urine foamy. Although it does not make you feel uncomfortable, it can impair your renal function and make your kidney disease worse. Conventional treatment such as steroids and immunosuppressants can hardly make it negative. In our hospital, systemic Chinese medicine treatment can help you turn it negative. Look at this picture, bubbles in urine become less and less with our treatment going on.
