To Protect Renal Function, 3 Symptoms Should Be Treated as Early as Possible

To Protect Renal Function, 3 Symptoms Should Be Treated as Early as Possible
The focus of kidney disease treatment is to repair damaged kidneys and restore renal function. Besides, some symptoms can speed up the disease, and you can not ignore them. These three symptoms are swelling, proteinuria and high blood pressure.

The 3 symptoms affect each other.

As a large number of proteins leak out, the substance that absorbs water in the body decreases, causing water and sodium to be retained in the body so as to cause pitting edema. Water and sodium retention can also elevate blood pressure, while high blood pressure can pose a serious threat to kidney function so that more and more protein goes out of body. This is a vicious circle, which will eventually speed up renal failure.

How to control these symptoms?

To combine work and rest to avoid infection.

If you have proteinuria, swelling and high blood pressure at the same time, you should not only pay attention to medication, but also healthy living.

The occurrence of these symptoms is closely related to the renal immune system and metabolic disorders. To improve the immunity and speed up the body metabolism, the renal patients should combine work and rest together. In addition to bed rest, they also need to exercise appropriately, such as jogging, walking, doing exercises, etc., which can strengthen physical fitness and enhance immunity, as well as relaxing blood vessels, accelerating metabolism, and strengthening the function of organs. Infection also can cause immunity metabolization disorder. Therefore, to prevent infections is very important. Besides exercise to raise resistance, pay attention to personal hygiene and reasonable diet. When necessary, vaccination should be done.

Reasonable diet and balanced nutrition are the basis.

Kidney patients must strictly observe the two major dietary principles of a low-salt diet and a low amount of high-quality protein diet. We all know that excessive salt intake will lead to sodium and water retention, which is not conducive to the alleviation of edema and blood pressure. Therefore, the daily salt intake of kidney patients cannot be higher than 5g, and with severe edema, it cannot be higher than 3g. Patients with a large amount of proteinuria should adhere to a low amount of high-quality protein diet. Generally, patients can only consume 1g/kg of protein per day. Patients with severe swelling and hypoproteinemia can have a daily protein intake of 1.2g/kg.

To avoid malnutrition, patients should combine meat and vegetables, and take in 100g meat, 0.5 kg of vegetables and 200g of fruit every day. In addition, you can drink milk, eat egg and so on to complement protein.

Avoid spicy, and oily food such as chili, ginger, garlic and so on, lest stimulate the condition, and aggravate immune inflammation reaction.

To follow the doctor's advice and stick to long-term medication

Because kidney damage is irreversible, these symptoms tend to run through the development of kidney disease. Edema is very obvious in the early stage, hypertension begins to appear after stage 3, and proteinuria will always appear. Therefore, in order to control these symptoms, you should stick to long-term medication. Among them, ACEI and ARBs have the effect of reducing blood pressure, lowering proteinuria and protecting kidney function.
