Facial swelling or puffy face always appears as the consequence of large amounts of fluid build up in the body, it occurs easily in body parts with loose tissues like eyelid, face, ankle and limbs.
How to manage facial swelling caused by kidney failure?
Similar with other discomforts caused by kidney failure, facial swelling also needs to be brought under control effectively and its management should start from the following several aspects:
1. Tight control of fluid intake
A tight control of fluid intake is necessary for kidney failure patients to receive good treatment effects in treating facial swelling.
2. Diuretics can be used in some cases
If left alone, facial swelling will spread to the whole body. In that case, diuretics can be applied to help to remove excess fluid in the body. There are different kinds of diuretics in medicine. Generally speaking, for patients who have hyperkalemia, they need to take the general diuretics which can help to excrete excess potassium while excreting excess fluid in the body. However, if potassium level in blood is lower than the reference range 3.5-5.5mEq/L, potassium-sparing diuretics will be suggested.
3. Improvement of kidney function
Disturbance of potassium metabolism appears as kidney can not function well. Therefore, if we want to remit facial swelling, kidney failure patients must repair kidney damages to improve kidney function. Only in this way, can excess fluid in the body be removed and also can facial swelling be alleviated fundamentally.
