It is not a single disease, its presentation depends on the specific disease entity. There are many factors that can cause this disease, especially some autoimmune disorders, such as lupus.
There are two types: chronic and acute glomerulonephritis.
Signs and symptoms in glomerulonephritis
● Pink, red, dark brown or cola-colored urine from blood cells in urine (hematuria)
● Foamy or bubbly urine (proteinuria)
● Urinating less than usual
● High blood pressure (hypertension)
● Fluid retention (swelling or edema) in eyes, face, forehead, feet, and abdomen
● Frequent and urgent urination
Forehead swelling in glomerulonephritis
Forehead swelling results from fluid retention. When kidneys are damaged, the renal tubules fail to reabsorbe the fluid adequately, thus lead to more fluid formation inside the kidneys. However, this large amount of fluid cannot be excreted by kidneys with urine, thus leading to forehead swelling.
Treatment to relieve forehead swelling
● Reduce fluid intake
Since the fluid has been retained inside the body, drinking more fluid will aggravate your illness condition. Therefore, you should limit the fluid intake. Not only water, but also other food containing large amounts of water should be limited. You can email to firstname.lastname@example.org for suggestion from our doctors online.
Proteinuria is one of the factor that interfere with swelling. Medicines for reducing protein leakage are also helpful. In addition, diuretics are the common prescribed medicines to increase urine output and relieve swelling. Consult your doctor for right types of diuretics.
It is an innovation from hundreds of Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCMs). The effective ingredients have the function of improving blood circulation, reducing inflammation and degrading extracellular matrixes. These steps are to accelerate the discharge of wastes and fluid.
