Pain before and during passing the urine could be normal. But if baby has fever with shivering and loss of weight then first morning sample of the urine should be tested in laboratory to see for any infection. But most if the times it is normal.

Chronic Kidney Disease

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Chronic Kidney Disease

The kidney disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality now a days. There are serveral reasons for getting into the renal failure but one of the most important causes are chronic blood pressure and chronic uncontrolled diabetes. Synthetic drugs for uric acid and other diseases are also one of the reasons in some cases and in some cases the nephrotic syndrome, nephritis and auto-immune diseases are the cause.

No matter whatever is the cause, once the creatinine level goes beyond the limits, it becomes very difficult to bring it back in the range. There are however certain natural herbs and ayurvedic remedies which have shown excellent results in lowering down the creatinine levels without causing elevation in the potassium levels or affecting the sugar levels. The herbs used together helps to improve the overall health and improve kidney functin.

Chronic Kidney Disease Due To Diabetes And How To Avoid Dialysis?

Although people with type 2 diabetes are at greater risk of kidney problems,but still the stage of arriving in kidney failure can be prevented by taking care of sugar levels. If the stage has already come and the patient is in chronic kidney disease phase, then there are certain ayurvedic herbs which should be used along with whatever treatments are going on. It can be even dialysis also.

Controlling diabetes by lowering blood sugar, dieting, exercising, is very important to keep sugar levels in control. Even blood pressure levels should be kept in control in natural ways rather than consuming pills. Pranayam (Breathing exercises) are the best to keep things in control. Please check video by Dr. Vikram Chauhan on breathing exercies and how to do them and how to avoid dialysis by regularly doing Pranayam.

Symptoms And Signs Of Kidney Failure

There are specific interventions, such as limiting salt in the diet that can help prevent the progression of kidney disease in people who have the early signs.

Protein in Urine - In uncontrolled chronic diabetes, the most important sign is the leakage of large amount of proteins in the urine.Very large amounts of protein in their urine -a marker of kidney disease, which is evidence of moderately impaired kidney function or difficult-to-control hypertension.

One particular patient, a man in his mid-50s, had all of the above. At 30 ml/min, his glomerular filtration rate, or GFR-a measure of kidney function-suggested he already had moderate to severe damage. He had a large amount of protein in his urine, poorly controlled hypertension, and poorly controlled blood sugar. After using Ayurvedic remedies for about 1 month, things improved dramatically. Similarly there are many other success stories where patients were on regular twice weekly dialysis and their frequency of dialysis reduced to once in fortnight. We consider this also a big achievement. In many cases, the dialysis was avoided all together, after about 6 months to 1 year of treatment.

THREE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO PREVENT KIDNEY FAILURE:

If tests reveal a problem, your doctor will recommend ways to slow the decline in kidney function and prevent kidney failure, which include the following:-

  • Controlling your blood sugar
  • Controlling your blood pressure
  • Taking blood pressure medicines

But according to ayurveda, the most important thing is to change your diet from acidic to alkaline. Improve your breathing pattern. Start doing breathing exercises as suggested in the link above.

Diseases like Diabetes and blood pressure are leading cause of kidney failure. Nature has given us powerful herbal remedies which can be wondeful herbal care for chronic kidney failure patients. The herbal remedies offered by us are free from any chemicals and contain only natural ingredients without causing any side effects. These are 100 % vegetarian and natural products for kidney failure, which can be taken along with any treatment of modern medicine. These herbal remedies not only help to avoid dialysis but also aid to revive the kidney failure in a very smooth and natural way. These herbal remedies are the best products for kidney care and useful to lower down increased urea and creatinine levels. These supplements are Mutrakrichantak Churna, Punarnava Mandur, Varunadi vati and Rencure Formula.

How To Avoid Dialysis?

The herbal products like Mutrakrichantak Churna contain herbs like Punarnava ( Boerrhavia diffusa) and others which have remarkable properties to reverse the kidney failure. "Puna" means again and "Nava" means New. So this herb helps to revive the kidneys. This is one of the best herbal remedy for kidney failure and an excellent alternative to avoid dialysis.

Herbal Remedy For Kidney Failure

The herbs lke Punarnava, Varuna, Tribulus, Shigru, Apamarg etc. are described in ancient Ayurveda texts - 5000 B.C old system of healing practised in India. These herbs are excellent to revive kidney failure and lower down swelling, reduce volume of accumulated fluid and thereby increasing the chances of revival of kidneys.

Maharashtrian or non maharashtrian, avoid high intake of protein rich foods. If you are a diabetic, you will probably need dialysis in future.
