Chronic Kidney Disease

Nephrologist, Gurgaon

Hello!

I'm Dr. Suraj Gupta. I m a consultant nephrologist and practicing in Kidney and hypertension clinic in Gurgaon and Narayana super speciality Hospital, Gurgaon.

Well, I would be going to discuss briefly about chronic kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease or CKD which s stand due to gradual decrease of kidney function. Kidneys are one of the important organs of the body. And the primary function of the kidney is to filter and clear the toxins from the body. What are the overtime conditions like diabetes, hypertension and sticky kidney disease or autoimmune disorders can lead dysfunction in our kidney and can reduce the ability and weakening the ability of our kidneys to filter or remove the toxins from our body. What are the most important causes of chronic kidney disease or CKD? Most important causes of chronic kidney disease of CKD is diabetes or hypertension. These are the most prevalence causes of CKD. Other causes or other people who are at risk are people who have a family history of chronic kidney disease or people who take lot of pain killers or over the counter painkillers, even something as insignificant like a brufen tablet can cause chronic kidney disease if used very (inaudible 1:26) and very long period of time. What are the symptoms of chronic kidney disease? Chronic kidney disease or CKD in majority of time is described as a very silent disease. There are no symptoms in the early stages of chronic kidney disease. Once it advances symptoms are very nonspecific. Most of the time it could be present with vague symptoms like nausea, vomiting, reduced appetite, gradually as it worsen it can cause swelling in your feet, swelling at your face, reduced frequency and alteration in urine. Other symptoms can be severe, can be fatigue ability because of anemia or uncontrolled blood pressure. These all can present as symptoms of chronic kidney disease. And in advance cases of chronic kidney disease they can be clinically present as shortness of breath, inability to lie down, and difficulty in sleeping, severe itching in your body. All these are common symptoms. How to detect chronic kidney disease? Majority of the times it present as a, a lot of time, it present by routine findings in the form of lab investigations. Most common investigation is the serum creatinine which is a routine blood test and it can be instantly detect by elevated serum creatinine. The other most important investigation is a very small investigation with very small and very less costly investigation which is urine routine and any loss of protein urine routine can signify chronic kidney disease or CKD. As we are coming in the era of rising prevalence of chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension so we see more and more of chronic kidney disease as well. So it is important and it is important to pick up these disease at an early stage because once it reaches the advance stage it becomes irreversible and it becomes untreatable. And the different options which remains are either dialysis of kidney transplant or nothing else can be done further. So it is important to pick them early and that is what my message would be.

If you have any of these symptoms or if you want to contact me in person you can either book an appointment through lybrate.com or get the personal appointment by the contact details available on the site. Thank you!

Good morning! I see no reason why you cannot go abroad and settle down there. Every place has medical facilities that can be used by you. However, it would only be judicious to visit your urologist and get his NOC for the same. He could also help you by online consultation in case you face any difficulty at any point of time. All the best. Take care.

Diet Tips After Kidney Transplant

Diet Tips After Kidney Transplant

Post kidney transplant, most people have a low immunity due to the powerful medications that are prescribed to avoid rejection of the organ. These medications tend to make the patients more prone to infections and hence, following strict dietary guidelines is necessary to avoid any complication. Also, as most people suffering from kidney failure are diabetic, hypertensive or suffer from heart disease, dietary control is mandatory. Moreover, the use of immunosuppressive drugs can increase your risk of diabetes, hypertension or heart disease. 

#1: eat a protein rich diet

After a kidney transplant, the body requires more proteins to aid in the healing process and improve immunity. This is the reason, why consuming proteins should not be limited. Also, patients who were previously on dialysis had a lower protein intake, post kidney transplant, the consumption of proteins is recommended to be increased. Here are 6 protein sources for vegetarians.


#2: do not eat raw fruits

Intake of raw fruits is not advised as there is a high risk of infection due to raw food. However, you can eat fruits in stewed form as cooking lowers the active bacterial load, thereby lowering your risk of infection.


#3: include curd in your diet

Curd contains good quality protein, which is required for healing post-transplant, hence, curd should be eaten. As far as sour foods like lime and tamarind are concerned, eating them is also okay. But avoid eating grapes as they are known to interact with immune suppressive drugs and hinder healing of the kidney. Also read about 11 diet do’s and don’ts for people with kidney problems.


#4: you need not avoid fruits/ vegetables with seeds

Foods with seeds like tomato, brinjal, ladies finger, guava, watermelon, etc are considered harmless and can be taken after transplant, provided other biochemical parameters like electrolytes and cholesterol are within normal range. Also, ensure that the level of potassium in the blood is within control. However, if you are suffering from kidney stones, it is better to avoid these foods.

#5: you might need to take protein supplements

People who undergo kidney transplants are recommended protein supplements during the initial stage, however, it varies from person to person. In most cases, post kidney transplant, patients recover their appetite, hence there’s no need for any supplements. However, if the patient feels that his protein intake is not optimal, he can continue taking supplements post-transplant, but only after consulting a nephrologist.

Unlike the common misconception that kidney transplant recipients can eat everything after a transplant, you need to follow a disciplined dietary routine with numerous restrictions, depending upon your overall recovery and health. You can start eating out after three to six months of kidney transplantation, as it is the average time taken for the immuno-suppression to be stable and be at a low level. However, raw food, salads, fruits and foods kept open should be strictly avoided, even in general.

I have been suffering from stones in kidney for last two years please suggest me better treatment.
The treatment would depend upon the size of the stones. Small stones less than 5-7 mm can be managed essentially with adequate fluids and dietary precautions. Your query could be better solved if a complete description of your ultrasound scan and symptoms was available to the treating doctor. Stones larger than 1 cm usually require some surgical intervention after thorough investigations.

Kidney Issues - How Ayurveda Can Help You?

Two kidneys are present on either side of the spine, above the waist. The kidneys perform important functions of cleansing the blood, controlling blood pressure and maintaining salt and mineral balances. Kidney related issues are to be treated as soon as they occur as failing to do so might lead to kidney failure, which is a serious condition.

Ayurvedic approach for treating kidney related problems
Each type of medical treatment has their distinctive approaches towards such treatment and so does Ayurvedic care. The weak body is toned up in a natural way in the first stage. The second stage is the prevention of diseases using natural remedies and the final stage is treatment through ayurvedic care.

Causes for kidney related issues and Ayurvedic care for such issues
The causes for kidney related issues are toxins, anatomical abnormalities, abiotic stress, mental imbalance, the easy entrance of microvita, and side effects of various allopathic medicines. One major reason for kidney related problems is the side effects of modern medicines or over dosage of allopathic medication. On the contrary, the medication system of Ayurveda effectively treats all the issues in a natural way without imposing ill-effects to the human body.

When to seek Ayurvedic care?
A few symptoms, the occurrence of which indicates that you should consult a doctor for checking of kidney related issues are nausea, weakness, ankle swelling, vomiting and shortness of breath. A few other symptoms are high blood pressure or urea and decreased hemoglobin. If these symptoms are due to kidney related problems, Ayurveda cure for kidney related issues is one of the best options for recovery.

Prevention of kidney failure- Ayurveda treatment to avoid dialysis
"Prevention is better than cure." If kidney problems arise, it is best to take preventive measures to avoid kidney failure. A few things that help in preventing kidney failure are controlling blood pressure, controlling blood sugar and improving breathing pattern. Diet plays a major role in preventing kidney failure. Ayurveda approach insists the change of acidic diet to an alkaline one. Diabetes and blood sugar can also lead to kidney failure. According to Ayurveda, natural remedies are available to treat chronic kidney failure patients. Dialysis can be avoided and the kidney functions can be restored with the help of a few herbal remedies in the Ayurveda approach. The level of creatinine and urea are controlled effectively by Ayurveda treatment

Recovery using Ayurveda care for kidney failure patients
Kidney damage for a period of 3 months or more is known as chronic kidney failure. The treatment of underlying cause, treatment of damaged kidneys and treatment of dhatus (body tissues) which makes up the kidneys are done in the case of Ayurvedic care. The kidneys are made up of "Rakta" and "Meda" and treating these two will lead to recovery. The benefits of using Ayurvedic medications for kidney related issues are plenty. The kidney damage is recovered, the risk of death can be reduced to a significant extent and frequency of dialysis can be minimized effectively. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.
