Leg Swelling in Hypertensive Kidney Disease: What To Do

Leg Swelling in Hypertensive Kidney Disease: What To DoHypertensive kidney disease, also known as hypertensive nephropathy, refers to the kidney disease caused by long years uncontrolled hypertension. With the development of this disease, patients can get some severe symptoms, and leg swelling is a common one. Then what should patients do? Read on, you can get answer.

In order to get the basic treatment of leg swelling in hypertensive kidney disease patients, we need first know well of its cause.

Normal or healthy kidneys have function of removing excess fluid out into urine. However, once kidneys are damaged due to hypertension, kidneys fail to remove extra fluid from blood, which can cause fluid retention in body and lead to swelling. So swelling often means kidneys have been damaged, it can occur in face, hands, ankle, lower legs, and so on.
