Can Lupus Make You Retain WaterCan lupus make you retain water? Water retention is a clinical manifestation of Lupus Nephritis. Therefore, once you have swelling on eyelid, face, hands, feet, ankle and so on, you should attach importance.

Why lupus makes you retain water?

-When sodium and water retention occur in patients with lupus nephritis, the plasma crystal osmotic pressure of the body will decrease, breaking the dynamic balance of water molecules inside and outside the cells, leading to the dramatic increase of salt in the plasma and tissue fluid, which will lead to water transfer from cells into the tissue fluid and eventually form the body edema.

-For Lupus Nephritis patients, hypoproteinemia leads to decreased plasma colloid osmotic pressure in the body, which in turn leads to the destruction of the dynamic balance of water molecules inside and outside the capillaries, and the movement of water molecules will be biased to the tissue fluid, resulting in edema in the body.

Treatment for Lupus Nephritis patients to relieve water retention

The most conventional treatment is to use diuretics or water pills to flush out the excess fluid from body, which can effectively alleviate swelling, but this is only temporary medical relief. Here we can introduce you a treatment, which can help you repair kidney damage and restore renal function, and then fluid can be passed out naturally.

This treatment is Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy. It is made up of various therapies, such as plasma exchange, external Chinese therapies (like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath,etc), cytokine infusion therapy, ozone therapy, vitamin and nutrient supplement, etc. They can work together to increase your urine, make you sweat and improve your bowel movement so that fluid and waste products can be discharged out of body. They can also inhibit renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. Moreover, they can supply the damaged kidneys with enough essential elements such as oxygen, vitamins and nutrients to speed up kidney recovery.

-After about one week’s treatment, water retention will disappear.
