Kidney function is severely decreased to only 15-29 percent of normal function in stage 4 kidney disease. Fluid retention can become one of common symptoms at this stage. If you are suffering from fluid retention, then how to deal with it?
If you start to experience fluid retention in stage 4 kidney disease, you may need to limit the amount of liquids you consume. Signs and symptoms of fluid retention include swelling in the feet, hands and face, shortness of breath and high blood pressure. These symptoms may indicate decreased urine output as kidney function declines.
A low-sodium diet may be prescribed to help treat fluid retention and control thirst if you are on a fluid intake limit. The sodium recommendation for stage 4 kidney disease is 1,000-4,000mg/day based on fluid balance, blood pressure and other diseases that may affect sodium requirements. Besides healthy diet, diuretics and dialysis treatment can help relieve fluid retention to a large extent. However, if fluid retention is caused by the great loss of protein into urine, it will not be easy to control the condition.
Besides what we mentioned above, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can be another treatment option. It treats fluid retention and other symptoms of stage 4 kidney failure by making kidneys work normally again.
