Steps for maintaining a healthy kidney

Kidney performs the central role in a human body. It is as important as heart or lungs. Many organs of the body are dependent on kidney to function healthily. Kidney removes toxic waste and excessive fluid from blood. 

Primary risk for kidney disease includes factors like high diabetes, high blood pressure, family history, heart disease etc. Obesity; autoimmune diseases; urinary tract infections and systemic infections are the secondary risks. 

Kidney damage occurs in stages and in most of the cases, body does not show any kind of symptom till kidney is damaged up to 90%.

Steps for maintaining a healthy kidney
1. Keep a control on the blood pressure and take every preventive measures against its increased level.
2. For people suffering from diabetes, have a control on your glucose level.
3. Keep the cholesterol level in the appropriate range.
4. If on medications, take the prescriptions on time.
5. If you have a high salt intake, cut-off the intake and aim for less than 1, 500 milligram sodium per day.
6. Maintain a healthy fluid intake
7. Eat healthily and keep your weight in check.
8. Have a limit on your alcohol intake
9. Exercise should be a compulsory part of daily routine
10. For those who are overweight; need to work on reducing the weight
11. Smokers need to quit it slowly and gradually as smoking would led to serious kidney damages
12. Do not take over-the-counter pills on a regular basis.
13. Check your kidney function if you have one or more of the ‘high risk’ factors consult your doctor.

I am a 55 yr old male having" painful bladder syndrome" since last 9 yrs. In this disease there is urgency, high frequency and painful voiding. There is 24x7 pain in bladder. Pain level change is abrupt and there is no set pattern. Night time is very bad when I have to spend more than 15-20 minutes for the very painful voiding. In food, I have to avoid items where potassium content is more e. G. Coconut water, papaya, dry dates etc. In allopathy there is no medicine for this disease called'interstitial cystitis. I have tried homeopathy also but after more than a year of trial & error left it too. This disease is more common in females then males in a ratio of 9: 1. Due to constant pain and relieving in squatting position, I am unable to go any where out of my house as availability of public loo is scare & also very unhygienic. Life has become very tough for me. If you can suggest in remedy or how to reduce the pain then I will be very thankful to you.

Dear, I would like know who and how the diagnosis is made. In this condition pain is not constant appears only when certain amount of urine is collected in bladder and passing urine pain settles down till the same quantity of urine is collected in bladder. As time passes patient learns that passing urine relieves pain so passes urine without an urge to pass urine but just to relieve pain. Over years bladder capacity decrease and frequency increases even more. Sometimes the disease disappears suddenly as it came. This disease is not so common and in modern days it is more often than not over diagnosed. So I would want to see all reports along with pictures of the scan and biopsy report in detail. Besides that two other possibilities are anal fissure due to constipation and bladder outflow obstruction with chronic cystitis and rarely tuberculous cystitis. Post the reports here.

I appeal to this type of patient that don't go for surgery, it can be removed by proper ayurvedic treatment. 

If you go for surgery, re-occurrence chances are very high.
