Rest is also crucial for patients while treating their illnesses. Many diseases require rest, and good rest is more conducive to the treatment of diseases. Nephritis is one of these diseases. Rest is particularly important for patients with nephritis. So on weekdays, friends with nephritis patients must rest more. Now let's talk about why nephritis patients must rest well.
Rest is a protective measure for the body. It is also one of the important treatment and rehabilitation measures. Basically, all patients with nephritis need to rest, and the rest method and time depend on the condition, based on the recovery of several common clinical manifestations of nephritis.
In the early stage of acute nephritis, or when the patient experiences moderate or above edema, oliguria, gross hematuria, dizziness, headache, vomiting symptoms, elevated blood pressure measurement, symptoms such as palpitations, shortness of breath, coughing, and other abnormal laboratory examinations, etc., renal function is poor, indicating a serious condition of the patient. Therefore, absolute bed rest is necessary to prevent further deterioration of the condition. At the same time, symptomatic treatment should be carried out. After the symptoms improve, one can get out of bed and take a walk. After the symptoms completely disappear, the amount of activity should gradually increase, but rest should still be the main focus, and excessive activity should not be allowed. Generally, patients with acute nephritis should rest for no less than 3 months. Chronic nephritis patients can engage in lighter work after the above symptoms have basically disappeared and the renal function test is normal. They should participate in some physical exercise appropriately to enhance the body's disease prevention and disease resistance ability. However, they should avoid excessive physical labor and pay attention to regular urine routine and functional status checks.
Meanwhile, experts also point out that rest is not equivalent to lying still. It is also very necessary to carry out some activities appropriately. This can also enhance the physical fitness of patients with nephritis to a certain extent. Therefore, a reasonable arrangement of daily life for patients with nephritis is an important guarantee for the treatment of nephritis.
