Edema is one of the most common symptoms of kidney disease patients, but many patients with kidney disease don’t understand about their edema. So, what are the causes of edema in nephropathy?
When the kidney is sick, the renal filtration area decreased, decreased permeability, and blood flow reduction, but the renal tubular reabsorption function is intact, resulting in oliguria, resulting in water accumulation in the body, causing edema.
Kidney disease in patients with renal dysfunction, resulting in toxins in the body can not be discharged, uric acid, creatinine, concentration of urea nitrogen and other toxic substances in the body is too high, the body self-protection, in order to reduce the toxins damage on organs, lead to water retention and resulting in edema.
What are the causes of edema in nephropathy? During kidney disease, because of glomerular basement membrane permeability increased by a large amount of protein from the urine, resulting in decreased plasma protein concentration, plasma osmolality decreased, the liquid from the blood vessels enter into the protein (and osmotic pressure) relatively high interstitial membrane, resulting in edema.
Different types of kidney disease, the degree of swelling is not the same, such as acute nephritis can cause edema, nephrotic syndrome can cause more swollen and more serious, in the oliguria phase of some chronic nephritis syndrome and acute renal tubular necrosis will also appear renal edema, and chronic renal tubular disease, chronic interstitial disease, pyelonephritis and other generally do not occur edema.
What are the causes of edema in nephropathy? The above is a detailed introduction, we hope to help.
