Facial Edema in Nephrotic SyndromeNephrotic Syndrome is a glomerular damaged that can be caused by many factors. It is characterized by large amount of proteinuria, hypoproteinemia, swelling, and hyperlipidemia. Facial edema or facial swelling is so common in Nephrotic Syndrome patients.

Causes

1. Large amounts of protein leakage

Because there are so much protein leaking out of the body, proteinuria results in reduced plasma colloid osmotic pressure. Then, the fluid in the blood vessels will move into the space of tissues, thus leading to edema.

Swelling will occur on the face, eyelids, necks, or even throat. When it becomes more serious, it will cause edema on the limbs or even the whole body.

2. Reduce GFR (glomerular filtration rate)

Due to kidney damage, the glomeruli cannot filter excessive sodium. What’s more, due to disordered secretion of hormones, the reabsorption of sodium by kidney tubules increases, so the sodium level elevates. Then

Water-sodium retention leads to facial edema.

Treatments

1. Medicines

Steroids and immunosuppressants are prescribed by the doctors. In general, Nephrotic Syndrome patients can be treated well.

Diuretics, ACEIs and ARBs can also be used for reducing proteinuria so that they can relieve facial edema.

2. Chinese herbal tea

Some Chinese herbal teas are more natural then oral medicines, and Nephrotic Syndrome patients can choose this treatment. Dandelion, nettle, poria cocos, rhizome of lalang, grifola, corn silks are the commonly used as natural diuretics.

3. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

This therapy is an application externally used on the kidney area. The Chinese herbs are micronized and can permeate into kidney lesions directly by osmotic devices.
