Kidney Diseases

Kidney Diseases

Genetically   Indian ethnics have more chance of getting diabetes and hypertension. We know these are the common causes of chronic kidney disease. From the onset of diagnosis of both these diseases one has to be aware that he or she has a chance of getting a kidney problem but one should not get frightened of this fact.

Prolonged life expectancy –

            Average life span of persons even in the developing world is increasing due to advancement in the medical field and quite naturally the rate of chronic disease will be rising over the years to come

Indian stats –

            Various statistics from Indian studies show a prevalence of kidney disease may be from 2 -3 % though there may be variations.                                                 

Diabetes –

            Diabetes is an epidemic in India with more than 62 million diabetic individuals currently diagnosed with the disease.  It is predicted that by 2030 diabetes mellitus may afflict up to 79.4 million individuals in India. Diabetes is a multisystem disease and kidney problems may occur even at the diagnosis of type2 diabetes mellitus. Indians develop diabetic nephropathy earlier than the western population.

Hypertension –

            Recent studies have reported that shown that hypertension is present in 25-30% urban and 10-20% rural people in India. This translates into an approximate population burden of 100-110 million persons with high blood pressure. If hypertension is not going to be adequately controlled all the blood vessels of the body is going to get affected including the tiny blood vessels of the kidney culminating in permanent kidney failure.

Other causes –

How Alonzo Won NBA Title Even After A Kidney Transplant?

DM - Nephrology, MD - Medicine
Nephrologist, Coimbatore
  • In 2000, Alonzo Mourning was on top of the world: He had a fat new NBA contract, an Olympic gold medal, and a second beautiful child–plus the fame and wealth he had earned playing the game he loved. But in September of that year he was diagnosed with a rare and fatal kidney disease. Over the next couple of years, as his health faltered, he retired, unretired, and retired again–and sought to make sense of what remained of his life. Finally in 2003, after a frantic search for a donor match, Mourning had a new kidney and a new outlook. He vowed to make this second chance count by dedicating his life to others.
  • By sharing his experiences of the chasms and peaks of illness and recovery, Mourning delivers a message of faith and fire, trust and triumph.

Health Tip

Health Tip

Our brain is made of 75% water. It seems therefore logical that dehydration may have an impact on cognitive functions and mood.

  • Several studies, performed in healthy persons, looked at the effects of induced dehydration on cognitive performance and motor function: fatigue, mood, choice reaction time, short- and long-term memory, attention, arithmetics…
  • It appears that a 2% dehydration is sufficient to impair functions and performances.Some studies have suggested that adverse effects may even be present at 1% dehydration.
  • Young children and adolescents, in particular, may be at risk of impaired cognitive function (concentration, alertness and short-term memory) due to insufficient hydration

My husband have kidney stones on both the kidneys of multiple stones. He had pain on the left side back since two days. The scanning reports said that he has a kidney stone on ureter. It is 5*3.8 mm. Doctor said that you go to the surgery. But now he had no pain. Is that surgery required or not? Or we go to homeopathy with out surgery? What we do? We are confused. Please gave me the solutions. What medication should we take please answer me. Thank you.

If stone is causing obstruction of ureter and enlargement of kidneys they have to be removed within two weeks maximum. Unlikely that natural medicines work over short term. Consult your urologist/nephrologist.

Taking lot of coffee may cause increased frequency of urination. Prostate gland enlargement also may cause increased frequency. If the total urine output is less than 3.5 litres it may be normal.
