Question: I have water retention all over my body and face. Is it possible my kidney is not functioning? My creatinine is 250 umol/L.

Does General Swelling Mean the Kidney Is Not FunctioningAnswer: Creatinine 250 umol/L means you are in Stage 3 CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) with moderate kidney damage. Swelling is one of the common symptom of kidney disease. Even though general swelling is very serious, it does not mean that your kidneys are not working at all. There are some measures you can take to relieve that condition.

Since so many factors can aggravate swelling, you should take specific treatment based on real causes.

First of all, fluid intake is the direct cause of general swelling. As your kidneys have failed to remove excess fluid out of the body, you should strictly limit your intake of fluid. The recommended amount can be calculated by your doctor. You can also send you test report to, and our doctors can help you make a balanced diet plan.

Secondly, damaged kidney function is the root cause. Therefore, treatment should aim at repairing damaged renal tissues. Therefore, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is an innovation from Traditional Chinese Medicine, and has been used in our hospital, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital for almost 30 years. The effective ingredients can expand blood vessels, fight against inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes. Therefore, it can improve blood circulation and repair damaged renal tissues, thus protecting and enhancing renal function. As a result, excess fluid and creatinine can be discharged naturally and effectively.
