2017-12-24 15:04

Stage 4 Kidney Failure and Legs Swelling What to DoSwelling is a common symptoms of kidney failure, and it can lead to so much sufferings. While, what to do with legs swelling in stage 4 kidney failure? In this text, I will give an example to account for it.

“I’m 54 , diabetic with recently controlled levels of 99- 127, High blood pressure, treated. I also have stage 4 kidney failure (known 4 about 4 months now). Question: My legs have been swelling worse and worse, painfully so. I have pitting to my hips if I lean against something or push on my skin. Am I drinking too much water? I elevate my legs several xs /day but they are swollen within 5 min of standing, walking or sitting.” It is a message from a US patient.

Here is a brief reply from our doctor:
"I see, please do not worry. For you case, you can entirely take treatments innovlving dialysis, steroids, Chinese medicines and other therapies to get rid of the swelling and improve kidney function.
Your swelling is caused mainly due to the damaged kidneys which can not eliminate the unnecessary things from body and prevent some nutrients from leaking. And when you kidney is recovered, your swelling will disappeared. Since you have serious swelling, please do not take too much water.
You blood sugar is controlled good. Is it in medicine or insulin? Please also insist the diets with low sugar.
As you have been in stage 4 kidney failure, please do not have foods with high fat and high protein.
What is you blood pressure level? If you can not control it well, please stop the salt intakes provisionally. By the way, high blood pressure can also be caused by kidney damage, this can be a reason why you can not make it low. Do you have it before or recently? Or is it out of managements lately?
