What if Diuretics Don’t Help with Leg and Feet Swelling for FSGS Patients

What if Diuretics Don’t Help with Leg and Feet Swelling for FSGS PatientsWhat if diuretics do not help with leg and feet swelling for FSGS patients? There are many factors that affect the effect of diuretics. First of all, you should find out them, and then you can take corresponding measures. Now go on reading to learn more information.

What causes diuretics not to take effect for FSGS patients?

-With FSGS, it is likely for patients to have massive proteinuria, which can lower plasma colloid osmotic pressure. If you can not restore the pressure, it is difficult for you to relieve the swelling.

-If patients have taken diuretics for long term to pass out the extra fluid from body, drug tolerance may occur.

If diuretics don’t help with leg and feel swelling, what to do for FSGS patients?

-For the first case, albumin can be given to restore the pressure. And meanwhile you should take treatment to stop protein leakage.

-For the second case, you may have to change the current diuretics into other types.

In addition, you can try a systemic treatment for FSGS. It is Toxin-Removing Treatment.

This treatment can help repair kidney damage and restore renal function. When renal function gets improved, extra fluid can be discharged out of body naturally.

This treatment is made up of various therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, etc.

The above therapies can increase urination, improve your bowel movement and make you sweating so as to eliminate waste products and fluid from body. After about one week’s treatment, swelling will get relieved greatly.

They can also reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse.

Moreover, they can increase blood flow into kidneys and improve blood circulation so as to provide the damaged kidneys with enough essential elements to speed up kidney recovery.

After about one month’s treatment, swelling will vanish, and FSGS will be under control.
