Questions: My husband has been swollen in his legs and ankles for months. The doctor only mentioned Nephrotic Syndrome and told him to continue Lasenopro. What can be going on and why?
Answer: Nephrotic Syndrome is not an independent kidney disease but a group of symptoms including edema, proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia and hyperlipidemia.
Edema or swelling, is always caused by large amount of protein leakage. It can occur in arms, legs, feet and face.
Another cause of swollen feet is damaged kidneys. Due to reduced kidney function, excess fluid cannot be removed adequately, thus resulting in water-retention present as swelling (edema).

There is no doubt that treatment is the more important thing. I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs. The main curative effect is to increase blood circulation by purifying the blood. Therefore, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to function well. As long as kidney can work normally, protein can be effectively reabsorbed by renal tubules, so proteinuria disappear gradually. Then, swelling will also be relieved and stopped.
Maikang Mixture (one bottle of liquid medicine), Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath and Foot Bath are commonly used for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. They are all based on traditional Chinese herbs, most of which are plants, so they are very safe for kidney disease patients.
