Leg Swelling in Purpura Nephritis

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-03-07 08:31

Purpura nephritis is one of serious complications of purpura. As the condition progresses, a myriad of symptoms will appear. Leg swelling is a common sign of purpura nephritis.

Purpura nephritis

Purpura is an immune-medicated disorder, where allergen stimulates the body to produce antibodies. When allergens enter body, they will combine with antibodies like IgA to form immune complexes. The immune complexes will deposit in different body parts like skin, digestive tract, joints, kidneys etc. These immune complexes can then activate the inflammation of blood vessels. If the small blood vessels in kidneys are affected, it may cause purpura nephritis.

Causes of leg swelling in purpura nephritis

When Purpura Nephritis occurs, without effective treatment, chronic kidney disease (CKD) will be the result. The diseased kidneys can not eliminate fluid from body properly, thus resulting in edema. For gravity, leg swelling often occurs in purpura nephritis firstly. Meanwhile, if fluid lingers in body, it will also elevate blood pressure.

How to control leg swelling in purpura nephritis?

In general, a diet low in fluid should be followed. Diuretic medicines can increase the urine output to relieve swelling.

Since leg swelling in purpura nephritis is associated with kidney impairment, to control it, a treatment should be applied to restore the impaired kidney structure.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an effective treatment for purpura nephritis with leg swelling. This is an externally applied therapy of Chinese herbal medicines. The effective medicines not only can dilate blood vessels and provide essential substances for kidneys, but also can activate the self-healing ability of the body. If the impaired kidney tissues and cells can be regenerated, renal function will be improved. However, in most cases, the kidneys can not recover the normal function of healthy kidneys. If so, leg swelling in purpura nephritis will be controlled fundamentally.
