Renal failure is resultant of many other disorders in body and to cure this disease first of all history of the patient is important.
History of the patient reveals about the state of the patient and state of the disease in the body, it includes family history, medical and personal history. With this information, physician is able to make proper diagnosis of the disease.
Family history of any disease Diabetes, Hypertension, Coronary artery disease reveals about the occurrence of the diseases and symptoms in the patients from family. These disorders can be categorized as Genetic or Hereditary disorders. These diseases get passed from generation to generation, so giving your doctor your family history is important.
If patient is taking tobacco, smoking, drugs, alcohol, any kind of addiction. Whether taking these things currently or from long time. It reflects physical as well as psychological condition of the patient.
If Patient is consuming any kind of medication for any diseases or if any surgery is done in the past, any type of medication in continuation, 5-6 months back or long is important. Your physician should not miss the same, viz. Continuous use of Pain killers can also lead to kidney failure.
When patient goes to a physician, discussing current symptoms along with history is important. Whether patient feels any kind of uneasiness in body, difficulty in any body part, indigestion, breathlessness, unable to walk or unable to speak etc. Even the minor complaints are important to assess the disease and plan treatment. These complaints may help physician to reach to a perfect diagnosis. Don’t ignore any simple complaint as occasional headache even. Please do communicate with your doctor.
What chief complaint patient is complaining about we need to know. Few symptoms like continuous and persisting pain in abdomen, frequent micturition since one week, numbness in lower limbs etc. should not be missed.
Making a Ayurveda Diagnosis is Important
From Ayurvedic point of view what is the diagnosis of the disease, knowing about it is equally important as the treatment of the disease.
Physical examination of the Patient
Physical examination is very important factor to reach the diagnosis of a disease. It includes the following :
- Inspection of the patient.
- Palpation and Interrogation to the patient.
- Pedal edema
- Tongue examination
- Pulse examination (for OPD patients only)
Investigations – Medical Investigations are important to make a proper diagnosis. Laboratory investigations as well as other diagnostic test like USG, CT, MRI etc. In Kidney failure Urea, Creatinine, Uric acid, Sodium, Potassium levels are de-arranged. You may find only proteinuria in initial stages of disease.
For Ayurvedic treatment for kidney failure, we would require the following details:
For patients who are not on dialysis, we require the following information-
Blood Urea, Creatinine
Lipid Profile, CBC, Thyroid Profile, Liver function Test
For Diabetic Patients we require-
All blood reports stated above alongwith
HbA1c levels, Serum Inuslin, Urine routine examination
For dialysis patients we require –
Before dialysis weight
After dialysis weight
This will help to assess weight gain between the two consecutive dialysis sessions. We might me able to reduce frequency of dialysis in near future. Weight gained means amount of water collected in our belly as kidney is not able to make enough amount of urine. With ayurvedic medicine for kidney failure kidneys will start filtering blood and urine output will increase & patient will observe negligible weight gain before dialysis.
Before dialysis Urea & Creatinine– This is remarkable test without which kidney function can’t be determined. Pre dialysis Urea & Creatinine will decrease with our Ayurvedic treatment for kidney failure.
Urine Output in 24 hours tells about the current scenario of the patient’s kidneys whether kidney is able to perform its function of filtration.
Recent Ultrasound- It will clearly depict about the kidney size, if any shrinkage is there. It will help to analyze patient condition much better and how much time needed to recover. Patients with kidney size 10 cm will recover early than a patient with kidney size of 7 cm. Kidneys do shrink when they don’t work that’s the universal law.
For all patients we also require tongue’s image to assess the dosha imbalance and, Accordingly we advice Ayurvedic Medicine. This is a important feature where we use technology which help a doctor to prescribe right medicines.

These Doshas in their vitiated state separately or collectively reaches to the Kidneys (called as Sathan sansharaya -doshas collecting in particular area) and start producing the symptoms in patient as Pain in lower abdomen, Less micturition, Swelling in the body and thus causing the disease.
