Kidney Failure

Get Healthy Kidneys with Ayurveda

What is Kidney Failure?

Kidney diseases are becoming the 9th leading cause of death. It is also termed a silent killer disease. Every year about more than 2 lakhs of people is diagnosed with renal disease in a year in India. Renal failure or kidney failure means when kidneys no longer work properly as they did in a healthier state earlier. Renal failure can be temporary or permanent or can be acute or chronic. When the kidney function hinders suddenly it is called temporary or acute renal failure. When kidney functioning gets worse slowly, it is chronic renal failure. Kidney failure occurs when kidneys lose the ability to sufficiently filter waste material from blood and balance fluid. Kidneys are bean-shaped organs that remove waste products and extra water from the body and help in the production of red blood cells and controlling blood pressure.

The kidney is also responsible for the erythropoietin hormone and synthesis of Vitamin D. Two major causes like Diabetes and high blood pressure lead to failure of kidney function. Kidney Failure is the last end stage of chronic kidney disease. Kidney failure means kidneys have stopped functioning and require treatment for normal functioning.

Causes of Kidney Failure

  • Glomerular Diseases-Where glomerulus cells of the kidney where filtration occurs, when these cells get damaged due to some reasons, it leads to chronic renal failure.
  • Diabetes-Diabetes when remaining uncontrolled with medication leads to proteinuria i.e. albumin loss from urine which further harms kidney nephrons and causes renal failure.
  • High blood Pressure-High Blood pressure causes direct damage to nephrons and hence excretion functions get affected.
  • Polycystic Kidney Disease-It is a disorder with which one is born with i.e.- genetic disease.
  • Loss of Blood Flow to the Kidneys-If there is a sudden loss of blood flow to the kidney, it can lead to kidney failure that can be due to a heart attack, some allergic reaction, or can be due to dehydration too.

Symptoms of Kidney Failure

  • Itching-Itching over the body without any rashes, or simply patient face dry itching.
  • Nausea and Vomiting-Due to an increase in urea in blood, a patient feels heaviness in the epigastric region and has no feeling of hunger.
  • Excessive urine or not enough urine-As kidney functions are altered there is a change in urine output which signifies the stage of glomerular filtrate in the body.
  • Muscle Cramps-Muscle cramps usually at night in lower limbs, which are sometimes extremely painful and hard to bear for a patient.
  • Breathlessness-Sometimes due to decreased urine output patients develop pleural effusion or low hemoglobin levels due to the non-production of red blood cells in the body.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Kidney Failure

  •  Some of the Ayurvedic herbs and spices which have been beneficial in saving the kidney from failure are Varuna, Gokhru, Ginger, Triphala, and Turmeric. With their natural properties, they do not give any side effects.
  •  The dietary changes which aid the functioning of the kidney include intake of fresh fruits and vegetables, juices, loads of water, and coconut water.
  •  The vegetarian diet must be preferred as the animal-based diet will worsen the already existing conditions.
  •  As the way of living impacts the lifestyle, it needs to be modified too. An active lifestyle must be followed.
  •  Lastly, to curb the stress, Meditation and Yoga should be practiced.
