Syndrome of kidney edema

Edema of the nephrogenic nature, as a rule, quickly appears and can quickly disappear.

Swelling can be visible and hidden. Therefore, there are two types of disease:

  • Explicit (there are obvious signs);
  • Hidden (water accumulates inside tissues and organs, without going beyond their limits).

The liquid has properties to accumulate insideorgans and tissues, reaching a volume of 4-6 liters. With apparent edema, the distribution of water throughout the body can be uniform. In a lying position, it accumulates under the action of gravity.

Symptoms can be divided into external and internal.

External signs include edema of the following locations:

And the skin in places of swelling to the touch dry and soft. Skin color - pale.

With the acute onset of edematous syndrome, the skin in the swollen parts becomes dense.

Internal signs of edema include the following:

  • Ascites - intra-abdominal accumulation of water;
  • Eye hemorrhages (often affect the fundus);
  • Arterial hypertension;
  • Changes in urine indicators;
  • Swelling of the lungs without shortness of breath.

The cause of edema can be various diseases, such as:

  • Chronic glomerulonephritis - a consequence of this difficulty is the urine exiting the body.
  • Acute poisoning with drugs, alcohol.
  • Thrombosis of the renal veins;
  • Diabetes;
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus;
  • Amyloidosis - a violation of protein metabolism towards the synthesis of amyloids;
  • Syphilis.

Oedemia is directly related to impairmentsynthesis and excretion of urine. Therefore, any infection that affects the health of the urinary system. can cause fluid retention in the body and the appearance of edema.
