    How Does Lupus Nephritis Cause Facial SwellingLupus Nephritis is an immune disorder that can cause inflammatory and damage to various organs. Can Lupus Nephritis cause facial swelling? Indeed, it can. And this symptom not only can cause the discomfort, but also can affect your appearance. Therefore, you should have a well understanding about how does it cause facial swelling so that you can eliminate this symptom.

    How does Lupus Nephritis cause facial swelling?

    Facial swelling is mainly due to the build-up of fluid in the tissues of face. It is a common sense that our kidney is one of important organs which are packed with many functions to guarantee our body health. For instance, the healthy kidney is responsible for regulating and balancing the water and electrolyte in the body. However, for lupus nephritis patients, the damaged kidney fails to do these job. When the extra water or sodium accumulate in the body, swelling will occur. What’s more, the edema is easy to occur in patient’s eyelid or face.

    In addition, patients with lupus nephritis may experience proteinuria. Along with too much protein leaking into urine, protein in the blood decreases, leading to the decline of plasma colloid osmotic pressure. To balance of the blood, fluid will flow into intercellular space. Consequently, swelling occurs.

    As a matter of fact, lupus nephritis can cause facial swelling indirectly, while the root cause is the kidney damage. Therefore, the treatment should focus on how to restore kidney damage and protect remaining renal function.

    To reach the goals, we can recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy which is widely used in our Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Treatment Center. It is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. And effective ingredients of Chinese medicine can permeate into kidney lesion. Once kidney function get improved, kidney can work as it did once,accordingly, swelling will disappear.

    Besides, you should pay more attention to your diet. You should keep away from salty foods and limit intake of water. More info, please talk with our online doctors or email to
