Frequent urination can be due to drinking lots of water. It can also be due to cold weather. Or both the factors can act together. Sometimes, in people who are overweight, they tend to urinate frequently. There can always be infection, diabetes kind of problems. But you are too young to have those. If worried get urine analysis test done.

Sandeep Ji... Cure is a very big term to use especially for the disease so progressed... But for your relief I would suggest you to try homoeopathic treatment... there are chances that gradually she may not require dialysis... but as an Initial target we should aim for symptomatic relief, decrease in frequency of Dialysis, and improvement of general health... And I am sure homoeopathic medicine can do that.. Even if you have done homoeopathic treatment and couldn't find the results... don't loose hope in it.. It does no harm so safe to take with the ongoing treatment.. There are some excellent remedies like Equisetum, Alfalfa, Zingiber which has shown excellent result in such conditions...

Symptoms of Kidney Failure

Symptoms of Kidney Failure

Kidneys are an important part of the human body. From filtering wastes from the blood to maintaining the blood pressure and red blood cell count in the body, the kidney does it all. Both the kidneys are essential organs and should there be any discomfort in the kidneys, one should consult a medical practitioner as soon as possible. Kidney failure is a common problem in people. This issue manifests itself with certain signs and symptoms. One should listen to these symptoms and act quickly before the condition worsens. Here are some of the signs and symptoms of kidney failure.

Interestingly, in the initial stages, kidney failure portrays no symptoms. It starts developing slowly and steadily causing discomfort in other parts of the body and hindering the working of other organs.

  1. Weakness: If you are suffering from kidney failure, you will start feeling weak. Weakness is however not a symptom which can confirm a kidney failure. Weakness is caused due to many other health issues and thus, you need to verify with other symptoms to be sure of the fact that you are suffering from kidney failure only.

  2. Shortness of Breath: You may start experiencing heavy breathing right after doing some rigorous work. In fact, you might feel shortness of breath or be panting for long moments after climbing just a set of stairs. Shortness of breath is quite common indicating that the body is getting tired after doing work. Such indication, more than once a day, calls for an immediate check up of the body.

  3. Lethargy: While most people, especially the young generation to those in the early thirties jokingly declare themselves as lazy people; lethargy, however, is a symptom of many diseases. Various health issues develop if you feel lethargic of working. Apart from kidney failure, diabetes is also manifested in lethargic body movements. At times, just getting out of the bed in the morning seems very tiring and one continues to lie on the bed even after he/she is fully awake.

  4. Stomach Pain: If you experience pain in the stomach, especially in the sides, then it should be immediately checked by a medical practitioner. Doctors say that kidney failure can bring about stomach pains.

  5. Unusual Urine Discharges: This would include clear urine discharges which indicate that the kidney has stopped filtering the waste products.

Thus, these are some of the most important and common symptoms of kidney failure. If you notice any of these, it is advised to visit a doctor for a check up.

Such stones generally come out with Medical management. You need to take potassium citrate syrup 3 times daily for 3-6 months. Check your serum Uric acid level. Drink 3-4 litre of fluid daily. Decrease animal protein intake, decrease salt intake and increase citrus fruit intake. Check USG KUB after 6 months or SOS if symptoms worsen.

Chronic Kidney Disease - 9 Symptoms that Can Help You Detect it

What are the functions of the kidney?

The kidneys filter waste and excess fluid from the blood. As kidneys fail, the waste accumulates in the body. The two most important enzymes, which kidney makes are erythropoietin & renin. Erythropoietin are made by the kidneys if there is less oxygen in the blood. It tells the bone marrow to make more red blood cells. So this means there will be more oxygen carried in the blood.

Renin is made by the kidney if there is low blood pressure, low volume of blood, or too low salts in the blood Renin make the blood vessels smaller and tells the adrenal gland to make aldosterone. It also makes a person feel thirsty and all of this makes the blood pressure go up. Since Kidney plays a very important role in the overall functioning of the body, it’s very important to take care of its health.

Let’s have a look on various kind of kidney disease including the one which are chronic:

  1. Kidney stones
  2. Kidney Infections
  3. Glomerulonephritis
  4. Congenital Kidney disease
  5. Diabetic Nephropathy
  6. Hypertensive Nephropathy
  7. Cancer

Now what is Chronic Kidney Disease?

Chronic kidney disease include conditions that damage your kidneys and decrease their ability to keep healthy by doing the jobs listed, if it gets worse, wastes can build to high levels in the blood and make person sick.
Chronic kidney disease is caused by diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders.

What causes chronic kidney disease?
The two main causes of chronic kidney disease are diabetes & high blood pressure which are responsible for up to two third of the cases. Other conditions that affect the kidney are:
1. A group of diseases that cause inflammation and damage to the kidney’s filtering unit.
2. Inherited disease such as poly cystic kidney disease.
3. Malformation that occur as a baby develop in mother’s womb.
4. Lupus and other disease that affect the body’s immune system.
5. Repeated urinary infections.

What are the symptoms of chronic kidney disease?
1. Feel more tired and have less energy
2. Have trouble concentrating
3. Poor appetite
4. Trouble sleeping
5. Muscle cramping at night
6. Swollen feet and ankles
7. Puffiness around the eyes especially in the morning
8. Dry itchy skin
9. Need to urinate more often, especially at night.

In case of the similar symptoms one needs to get it diagnosed and connect with the physician for good care and treatment. Stay Healthy!

Hi Kindly avoid high protein diet like non vegetarian food, oily fried, pulses etc. Diet should be less in phosphorus that are constituent in high protein diet. Substitutes cottage cheese for hard cheese as well as drinking rice milk in place of regular milk can help lower the consumption of phosphorus. Drink an adequate amount of water. But, kindly consult a good homoeopathic doctor near you for his complaints as homoeopathy has shown great results in removal of calculus without a surgical intervention if the size of calculus is of considerable size. Kindly contact us through audio or video call for further analysis of his case. Tc.

This is not any disease as such. Avoid drinking lots of water before going to bed. Always make sure to urinate before going to bed. Stop taking water atleast one hour prior to bed. Get your blood sugar checked. May in addition form a habit of setting an alarm to go to toilet early morning in the middle of your sleeping hours.

Dear kidney stones can be removed completely through herbal medicines u need not to go for any surgery or therapy... Tips for removing kidney stones:: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. Pls send ur USG report becoz medication for stones depends upon size number and location of stones and can be given after USG

The creatine levels will improve only when his over condition improves. So do continue the present treatment and maintain the regular followup. He has to be disciplined regarding the diet habits and overall lifestyle. You can also include Homeopathy which is safe and gentle. It is given based on totality of the symptoms (regarding the body and mind) so that there is natural healing. The immune system is stimulated in a natural way without any side effects. You can contact me for a private consultation and further guidance.
