    Yes, it could cause that. As we all known, kidneys rid the body of waste, filter out nasty toxins and keep the blood clean. Kidney disease could be caused by diabetes, high blood pressure, infections or others. Puffy eye is a sign of kidney disease, such as nephrotic syndrome. In order to relieve the puffy eyes, you can try some home remedies. Firstly, you can chill some cucumber or potato slices in the freezer, and place them over your eyes for 15 minutes to reduce the redness and swelling. Or you can reduce inflammation in your body to reduce the puffiness both around your eyes and all over your body in general. However, these two remedies only can relieve the swollen eyes but not treat your kidney problems. I highly recommended you to do health check to solve your swollen eyes essentially.

    First of all, there are many reasons led to puffy eyes as I know. And kidney problem is one of it. Body fluidness, liver and heart problem could also lead to puffy eyes too. Normally speaking, don't drink too much water before sleep can help relieve puffiness. If you confirmed the puffiness is related to some kidney problems, then the best way for you to adapt is seeing doctor. Get professional help from doctor. I believe this puffiness will be better as your kidney problem solved.

    Yes, the kidney problems will show the weak body and cause the puffy eyes. You may get the puffy eyes because of the not good blood circulation. You may use the warm cloth to cover on the eyes to release the symptom. You should keep notice of the good habit of life, at both the diet and work and rest.
