Ayurvedic Treatment for Renal Failure

Few FACTS which a patient need to know!!!

Ayurvedic Treatment for Renal Failure – Kidney’s basic function is to filter blood. When it stops doing the same or kidney’s functioning reduces, body exhibits few changes. These changes generally are ignored or in some patients these are abrupt. First change that a patient feels is anorexia or low appetite. This change is generally ignored by patient, as in this fast life these are considered minor problems that everybody faces. As we all know food’s waste becomes toxic metabolite which is to be excreted. As with the passage of time toxins in the blood increase, body has a self mechanism of restricting the toxins that it does by reducing the amount of food that an individual can eat. That’s why this symptom appears first, so one should not at all ignore even a simple symptom of low hunger or decreased food liking.

Second symptom a patient generally observes is weakness & muscular cramps.  This symptom is again very common with today’s lifestyle and one tends to go for few on the counter supplements available. One would feel better by the supplements but as we know the underlying disease left untreated, the patient generally gets confused & avoids going to the specialist.

Third symptom which the patient may feel is itching. Patient’s skin may become dark as well. As kidneys fail, they are no more able to filter the toxins. The toxins start accumulating in the liver and skin. The skin becomes itchy in some patients. At times whole body color starts changing. This symptom is usually not ignored & patient consults specialist but again at this moment of time if an early detection is made then a life can be saved.

Another symptom associated is swelling in feet. This has been observed that Diabetic patient’s feet are more swelled as they loose a lot of protein in their urine. If you closely observe Urine routine examination report, albumin (protein) will be ++++. Also, along with if you check LFT it will show low levels of albumin or protein in blood. An optimum level of protein is required in an individual for proper blood circulation. As there is a deficit it has to be fulfilled. So the fluid exchange is there in capillaries, which causes edema/swelling. In Allopathic treatment, diuretics like Frusemide or Torsemide is given to patients to recover from edema. These diuretics gives timely relief to the patient but at the same time they have few side effects like electrolyte imbalance which can cause weakness, constipation and many more adverse symptoms as well. Ayurvedic Physician, at this point of time advise Ayurvedic/herbal Diuretics like Gokshura (Nephroactive- plus – https://www.advanceayurveda.in/product/renal-failure-treatment-nephroactive-plus/ ) , Varuna (Varuna Caps) & Punnarnava (Punnarnava Plus- https://www.advanceayurveda.in/product/kidney-failure-treatment-punnarnav/)

These herbs will not create any side effects (as allopathic chemicals are causing) and will also treat the underlying cause of disease, as they are helpful in restricting proteinuria as well. Punnarnava is well known herb for kidney functioning. Varuna also has a diuretic action.

Next very common symptom is nausea and vomiting. Patient will not be able to digest food and this will lead to other complications. Also, sometimes in End Stage Renal Disease, fluid accumulation in stomach can also cause nausea and vomiting. Stomach heaviness and anorexia are characteristic symptoms along with.

Another classical symptom is breathlessness. Patient does not ignore this symptom & straightway goes to a doctor and if investigations are done then a physician can diagnose. But why ckd patients feel breathlessness?

This can be due to two reasons. First reason is the over-accumulation of fluid in stomach or lungs. In all Ckd patients urine output decreases slowly and as patient does not reduce his/her liquid intake it can result in this symptom.

Kidneys not only filter blood but it performs a variety of other functions which help smoother functioning of body. One such function is manufacturing of Erythropoietin which helps in the formation of Haemoglobin (Hb) in body. Generally it is observed that all CKD patients confirmed low levels of Hb. They also complain of breathlessness without having other issues. The reason for the same is low levels of Hb. We all know oxygen & other nutrients are transported through Haemoglobin & blood all over the body. So, if Haemoglobin reduces, the circulation drops and breathlessness occurs. For this your doctor will recommend you Erythropoietin from outside in the form of injections.

In Ayurvedic renal failure treatment, Ayurvedic medicine improves kidney function. Also the requirement for erythropoietin injection decreases slowly. Haemoglobin levels also increase. Generally a high TLC and WBC count is observed in all kidney patients. This indicates infection, which is generally treated with antibiotics. Our medicine for kidney failure contains few elements which normalize the counts and WBC values. It also controls symptoms which are listed below.

List of anomalies caused due to kidney failure.

  1. Low Urine
  2. Low Haemoglobin
  3. High WBC- TLC
  4. High Potassium
  5. High Phosphorous
  6. High Uric Acid

 

These all anomalies are taken care off with our renal failure treatment supplements. Ayurveda works as a whole to control kidney disease.

High Potassium & Phosphorus is due to overuse of diuretics, or as the excretion is impaired, so these electrolytes start building up in the body. But with Ayurvedic diuretics like Nephro-active plus or Punnarnav plus, there is no such side effect seen. Also, it has been observed that these will start excreting as in a normal individual.

High level of Uric Acid is also observed with CKD patients & this leads to pain/ache all over the body. Again metabolism and excretion is effected here which results in these changes. Generally a salt named Febuxostat is recommended in this condition which works well but with our renal failure treatment, the excretion improves(of uric acid) and liver which is the manufacturing organ of uric acid is corrected. So, the patient observes improvement in this symptom within a span of 3-6 months.

Ayurvedic treatment works as a whole in improving kidney functioning and reducing creatinine as well. Where as in Allopathic renal failure treatment, there is a single process which can reduce creatinine which is Dialysis. To mention here, Dialysis is not a treatment. It is just a support till patient gets transplant done. The trust on Ayurvedic medicine helps patient to get rid of this dreaded disease which can never be cured with any other pathy or medicine. Even after few years of transplant kidneys may fail again. So, there is an urgent need of an alternative treatment for kidney failure which is safe and secure and can cure the patient completely. That is what Dr. Aggarwal’s Ayurvedic Panchakarma and Research Centre does. We collect all the patient reports which include blood reports, urine report, ultrasound etc. and then discuss the whole case with our team of Ayurvedic Specialists. Accordingly doctors plan the treatment protocol for our patients which is best suitable for them. The most important thing in our Ayurvedic treatment is trust. If patient trust us then we can definitely cure the disease. Here are a few testimonies of patients benefitted with Ayurvedic Treatment at Dr. Aggarwal’s Ayurvedic Panchakarma and Research Centre.

kidney failure treatment

kidney Failure Treatment – (Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis, Risk factors and Treatment)

kidney Failure Treatment – (Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis, Risk factors and Treatment)

It stands for END STAGE RENAL DISEASE.

Abnormal functioning of kidney causes ESRD.

Causes

ESRD occurs when kidney is not in state of proper functioning and life depends on dialysis and transplant. This type of kidney failure is permanent. It can’t be fixed. Diabetes and Hypertension are main causes of ESRD. Other reasons of ESRD are some reactions to medicines, injuries and some are born with us. Dialysis or a kidney transplant t is necessary to live in ESRD.

 

Symptoms

Ø             Weakness

Ø             Heaviness on head

Ø             Decreased amount of urination

Ø             Vomiting

Ø             Loss of weight

Ø             Tiredness

Ø             Pain in bones

Ø             Disturbance in menstrual periods

Ø             Change in colour of skin

Ø             Changes in nail

Ø             Swelling of the hands & feet

Ø             Numbness in the hands & feet

 

Diagnosis

Urine & blood test should be done in ESRD. These tests measure levels of creatinine and urea nitrogen in the urine and blood.

Blood test: Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (e GFR) is for creatinine.

GFR is the flow rate of filtered fluid through the kidneys from the renal glomerular capillaries into the Bowman’s capsule / unit time.

If estimated GFR is less than 15 then it is considered to be ESRD.

Risk factors

The persons who are suffering from following are at the high risk of ESRD:

 

Ø             Chronic kidney disease (CKD)

Ø             Injury or trauma to the kidneys

Ø             Major blood loss

 

Complications

 

Different complications are associated with kidney disease that sometimes contribute to worsen the condition of the patient.

 

Ø             Swelling

Ø             Hypertension

Ø             Infertility

Ø             High risk of infection

Ø             Rise in level of potassium

 

Difference between CKD & ESRD

 

CKD occurs when there is permanent damage to the kidney. Kidney may still work well enough for patient to live, even if they have some damage.

 

CKD can lead to kidney failure (ESRD) when functioning of both the kidney get worse. In ESRD the kidney do not work well enough for you to live.

 

 Can ESRD be reversed?

In ESRD, nephrons are damaged in large number which leads to low kidney function. The damaged part of kidney is able to be repaired with the help of right treatment.

How can ESRD be reversed?

In modern medicines, there are 2 choices for patients with ESRD i.e. Dialysis & Kidney transplant.

There are different Alternative Treatment options available. Ayurveda  provides an alternative of dialysis & kidney transplant. In Ayurvedic  kidney treatment, patient’s kidney disease is controlled by herbal medicine, diet plan & lifestyle.

Ayurveda helps to recover the kidney from ESRD. There are many herbs which repair the renal parenchyma & stop further damage of kidney. Due to this, kidney will slowly and gradually start its functioning as before. Ayurvedic medicine also decrease the level of urea & creatinine.

Glomerular filteration rate decreases because of ESRD which results in the accumulation of excess water, salt & toxic products in the body. Ayurvedic herbs also help to eliminate these toxins from the body.

Ayurvedic treatment for kidney failure  just not works to suppress the symptoms as allopathic treatment. It works to eliminate the root cause of disease. It helps to treat hypertension & diabetes which are major cause of ESRD. Natural herbs which are used to prepare ayurvedic medicine has best properties to overcome the bad effects of disease & to treat the disease. These all facts are scientifically proven.

Some ayurvedic herbs which help to treat ESRD are Crataeva nurvela, Boerhaavia diffusa & Tribulus terrestris).

Prevention from ESRD

 

ESRD is not preventable in some patients. The leading cause of CKD is Diabetes and Hypertension. By controlling these 2 factors kidney can be prevented from ESRD.

 

Kidneys can be protected by following these healthy habits:

 

Ø             Have regular checkups with doctor.

Ø             Eat a low fat, low salt diet.

Ø             Exercise regularly.

Ø             Avoid tobacco.

Ø             Drink alcohol only in moderation.

Kidney failure treatment – How to reduce creatinine

Toxic Foods To Avoid In Kidney Failure or How to reduce creatinine

Ayurvedic Treatment For Kidney Failure

The tips can be used with any type of kidney disease to reduce the stress on renal organs and slow down the disease progress.

 

What kind of changes do I need to make on a renal failure diet?

We have to limit the amount of protein

This directly helps to decrease waste in your blood.

Foods that are high in protein are poultry (chicken and turkey), meat, eggs, fish, and dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt).

Kidney patients should limit the amount of phosphorus, Kidneys cannot get rid of extra phosphorus that builds up in your blood. This may cause bones to lose calcium and weaken as high phosphorous leads to less absorption.

Foods rich in phosphorus are  beans, nuts, dairy products, peas, and whole grains. Phosphorus is also found in cocoa, beer, and cola drinks.

Kidney patients should limit sodium content in daily food items.

If you have high blood pressure or extra fluid in your body.

Kidney patients need to reduce their sodium(Na) intake to 1500 mg every day.

Canned foods, salted snacks, Table salt, soups, and processed meats, like sausage & deli meats are rich in sodium content.

Kidney patients have to Limit potassium content in food as well.

Potassium is found in all fruits and vegetables. Patients should limit fruits and vegetables that are high in potassium LIKE POMEGRANATE BANANA, GUAVA, ORANGE.

Limit the amount of liquids or water intake should be restricted to all kidney patients specially who are on stage 5.

If your body retains fluids, you will have swelling and fluid may build up in your lungs. This can cause other health problems, such as shortness of breath or breathlessness.

stages of kidney failure

Stages of Kidney Failure

Stages of Kidney Failure

With chronic kidney disease, the kidneys don’t usually fail all at once. Instead, kidney disease often progresses slowly over a period of years.

The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) created a guideline to help doctors identify each level of kidney disease. The NKF divided kidney disease into five stages.

Where you are placed into CKD stage 3 or higher, it usually depends on an estimate of kidney function.
Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR)
Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is the best measure of kidney function. A math formula using the person’s age, race, gender and their serum creatinine is used to calculate a GFR. A doctor will order a blood test to measure the serum creatinine level. As kidney function slows, blood levels of creatinine rise.

Even with a normal GFR, you may be at increased risk for developing CKD if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or a family history of kidney disease. The risk increases with age: People over 65 are more than twice as likely to develop CKD as people between the ages of 45 and 65.
Stage of Chronic Kidney Disease
eGFR
(estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate) ml/min/1.73 m
Stage 1: the eGFR shows normal kidney function but you are already known to have some kidney damage or disease. For example, you may have some protein or blood in your urine, an abnormality of your kidney, kidney inflammation, etc. The goals of treatment are to slow the progression of CKD and reduce the risk of heart and blood vessel disease.

90 or more
Stage 2: Mildly reduced kidney function AND you are already known to have some kidney damage or disease. Continue treatment to reduce the risk of other health problems.

60 to 89
Stage 3: Moderately reduced kidney function. (With or without a known kidney disease. ) Anemia and bone problems become more common. Work to prevent or treat these complications.

45 to 59 (3A)
30 to 44 (3B)
Stage 4: Severely reduced kidney function. (With or without known kidney disease.) Continue following the treatment for complications of CKD.

15 to 29
Stage 5: Very severely reduced kidney function. This is sometimes called end-stage kidney failure or established renal failure.

Less than 15 or On Dialysis
* All GFR values are normalized to an average surface area (size) of 1.73m2
Suffixes:
p suffix: the addition of p to a stage (e.g. 3Ap, 4p) means that there is significant proteinuria (more info)
T – the addition of T to a stage (e.g. 3AT) indicates that the patient has a renal transplant.
D – the addition of D to stage 5 CKD (e.g. 5D) indicates that the patient is on dialysis

My stage keeps changing : It is normal for measurements of creatinine and therefore GFR to change a bit from one measurement to the next. In some patients these changes may seem large, and enough to move you from one stage to another and then back again. As long as things aren’t getting progressively worse, it is the average that is important.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Kidney Failure (Kidney Failure Treated) – Real Life Experience of a Patient

Ayurvedic Treatment for Kidney Failure works wonders in saving life of patients suffering from the disease and striving for life.

Treating patients suffering from kidney problem since years. Cases like IgA Nephropathy, Pyelonephritis, Glomerulonephritis, Hypertensive Nephropathy, Diabetic Nephropathy.

A Patient sharing her experience about Ayurvedic Medicine with Dr. Aggarwal’s Ayurvedic Panchakarma & Research Centre.

Aarti

I am just 22 years of age, was diagnosed with kidney failure about thre and a half year ago. My treatment was going at Kidney Hospital Jalandhar, but my condition did not improved at all after the treatment, rather I was diagnosed with Tuberculosis after the treatment. I was on Dialysis as recommended by doctors. My weight reduced to as low as 33 kgs. I was in dark as everybody else recommended to go for transplant which we couldn’t even afford. I thought of losing my life. Then I met Dr. Shridhar Aggarwal at Chandigarh who advised me Ayurvedic Treatment for kidney failure. Before I was on dialysis twice a week & slowly and slowly with continuous medication and diet precaution it reduced to twice a month. Now my Dialysis has stopped. Tuberculosis is also cured. My Creatinine is stable at 2.2mg/dl. Recovery is good as seen from the reports. I feel great as I can do my household chores and other things without other’s help. I am very happy. Its like getting a new life. Thank you Dr. Aggarwal for saving my life.
