Your kidneys perform multiple functions inside your body. But their main responsibility is to filter waste and remove extra fluid (urine) from your blood. Sometimes, kidneys stop working like they should. If they stop suddenly, you have what doctors call acute kidney failure (or acute renal failure).
Given that the disease develops rapidly, it is important for you to know the reasons responsible for it.
What are the causes of acute renal failure?
The disease usually affects your kidneys when you are experiencing one of the following conditions:
a. Impaired flow of blood to kidneys
A number of diseases and medical conditions may slow blood flow to your kidneys and lead to kidney injury. These may include: excessive loss of blood, heart attack, infections, liver failure, severe allergic reaction, major burns, severe dehydration etc. Intake of certain medications to manage blood pressure is also linked to the disease. Similarly, use of aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen sodium, or similar drugs can also cause acute renal failure by reducing flow of blood to the kidneys.
b. Blockage of urine in the kidneys
If your kidneys' urine drainage tubes (ureters) become blocked, then it can lead to acute kidney failure. You are at an increased risk if you suffer from cancer of bladder, cervical, colon or prostate. Medical conditions such as an enlarged prostate, stones in kidneys, blood clots in your urinary tract or nerve damage in your bladder can also cause acute renal failure.
c. Direct injury to kidneys
Certain diseases, conditions and agents can damage your kidneys which in turn can lead to acute kidney failure. These include:
Blood clots in veins and arteries in and around your kidneys
Cholesterol deposits that block blood flow in the kidneys
Alcohol, heavy metals and cocaine
Glomerulonephritis (inflammation of tiny filters in the kidneys)
Now that you are aware about the causes of acute renal failure, you should also know that the disease is usually reversible. If you're otherwise in good health and get treatment without delay, then your kidneys may go back to normal functioning.
Do you find it impossible to control the urge to urinate every now and then? If you feel the need to urinate more than 8 times a day, then it could be a health problem. Frequent urination is the medical term for this problem. The condition is not the same as urinary incontinence, where there is leakage of urine.
A number of habits can play a role in causing frequent urination. This includes drinking more fluids and consumption of caffeine-based beverages. However, the condition may also be a sign of an underlying kidney disorder.
Relation between frequent urination and kidney problems-
While frequent urination is itself not a serious problem, but it can be a symptom of kidney or ureter problems, urinary bladder problems, or diseases such as diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, or prostate gland problems.
Frequent urination is linked to a number of kidney problems such as:
Kidney infection (pyelonephritis) is a type of urinary tract infection (UTI) that normally starts in your urethra or bladder and travels to one or both of your kidneys. Frequent urination is often the most common symptom of pyelonephritis.
Sometimes, hard collections of salt and minerals get accumulated in the form of stones in your kidney(s). These may increase in size in a ureter or the bladder. When the stone passes down the ureter, you may have an urge to urinate frequently.
c. Renal hypertension
If you suffer from renal hypertension (high blood pressure) or fluid buildup in the kidney, then your doctor may prescribe you medications that are used to treat and flush out excess fluid from the body. These medications can have a diuretic effect and may lead to frequent urination.
Feeling the urge to pass urine can be a symptom of many different problems. But if you experience the condition along with other abnormal symptoms such as fever or pain in abdomen, then you should consult your doctor immediately.

How Social Media can Impact Marriage Life?
This is one of the most interesting cases with a relationship and marital issues, where social media impacted the marriage life. It was with the help of Marriage Counselling that we helped the couple gain a better insight about themselves as well as their partner.
Mr. Ajit Dixit (age 65) with his wife Mrs. Sudha Dixit (age 64) approached us with their marital issues. They had an arranged marriage and have been together since the last 40 years. The couple lived their life very happily, with the normal ups and downs like in every marriage. Mr. Dixit is a businessman, quite dedicated and busy with his job. While, Mrs. Dixit is a housewife, free of almost every responsibility at her age. They have two sons, where both are happily married and settled in Toronto and Sydney.
Mr. Dixit recently noticed that his wife has been seeing someone. He didn’t like his wife’s unusual behavior, so he came for marriage counseling along with his wife. We had a couple of sessions with them, where we got to know that Mr. Dixit is very much of an introvert, while Mrs. Dixit is quite the opposite. She loves socializing with people, but due to her age and limitations, she only has the option of social networking. Mr. Dixit is mainly involved with his business, and due to his introvert nature, he doesn’t have a social circle apart from his employees. Mrs. Dixit started feeling lonely/isolated and turned to social media.
She started communicating with her school & college classmates, and even with her crushes. As days passed, her interest in the virtual reality grew stronger. She loved art and poetry, and with no surprise, she even posted poems on Facebook. Once her poem was liked by Mr. Ramesh (her secret crush from college days), and as he liked poetry himself, he responded to it with his own style. They started posting poems on facebook and commented on each other’s poem in very artistic flair. They even started dedicating poems to each other, shared their phone numbers and it was not very soon that they started seeing each other. They met at various cafes and restaurants, watched movies together and visited several museums within the city altogether. Thus, having a similar taste in the field united them and made her fall for her old-time crush. Even Mr. Sharma by now was having a romantic inclination towards her.
We discussed the matter with Mrs. Dixit and helped her understand that she was feeling isolated and wanted a friend with whom she could share her feelings. She said that she didn’t have anything of a common hobby with her husband and due to his nature and being busy all the time, they didn’t have much in common to talk.
After her children’s marriage, she could have indulged in her hobbies that she didn’t get time for or left ages ago. It is easy to carry on activities when accompanied by someone else, so she chose her friend and it leads to the romantic inclination towards him. We requested Mr. and Mrs. Dixit to indulge in some mutual activities, going out together at least during the weekends and especially to Mr. Dixit that he spends time with his wife also, and not give too much priority to his work.
We would additionally like to highlight the role of social media, how the ordinary level of flirting can lead to a serious relationship. In certain cases, married individuals also start comparing their spouse with their online friend and unconsciously create distance within their healthy relationship. We would recommend every couple to understand your partners need and spend much of quality time with them. It would also be advised to the readers to understand that cutting off from exes, especially when you are married or in a serious relationship becomes important for your relationship to be healthy.

Bad breath is a dental problem which could also emanate due to poor digestion. It can also be experienced as a side effect of other ailments as well as medications. Smoking and bad diet may lead to this and it usually becomes a matter of low self-esteem as time goes by. Homeopathy is one of the most natural forms of medication, treatment and wellness when it comes to such problems that affect the lifestyle of the patient. These medicines usually combine very small doses of naturally found elements so as to cure an ailment or condition. Yet, it is important to remember that one must get a prescription for these medicines from a professional medical practitioner.
- Merc Sol: If your bad breath problem also comes with symptoms like a moist mouth or constant dribbling, then this medicine may be prescribed. This usually happens when the salivary glands become too active and produce more moisture than what the mouth can handle on a normal basis.
- Pulsatilla: This medicine is usually prescribed if the patient complains of a dry mouth along with a bad breath problem. This helps in treating related symptoms like the lack of proper hydration due to the lack of thirst. Not drinking enough water can also lead to the problem of dry mouth and thereafter, a bad odour from the mouth.
- Kreosote: This medicine is considered as a very effective medication for bad breath, especially if the bad breath takes place due to caries in the teeth. This medicine can also help patients who are experiencing bleeding gums along with caries and bad breath.
- Hepar Sulphur and Carbo Veg: The combination of these two medicines is known as one of the best when it comes to treating bad breath. The other symptoms that call for the prescription of these medicines include Gingivitis or gum infection related problems and symptoms. When there is bleeding and pus in the gums due to the infection, then this medicine is usually prescribed. Excessive salivation is also another symptom that is treated by this medicine combination. Hepar Sulphur can be used if there is a throat-related infection or ailment that can lead to the problem of bad breath.
- Carbolic Acid: A homeopathic doctor will usually prescribe this medicine if the problem of bad breath is accompanied by intense and perpetual pain in the abdomen. The patient will also complain of gas in stomach due to the ailment that affects the stomach in such cases. This gives rise to many symptoms including bad breath. Loss of appetite is also treated by this medicine.
If you thought that chest pain occurred only due to a heart-related issue like a heart attack, you are wrong. Chest pain is one of the most common reasons that people visit the emergency services and it can be caused due to problems with your heart, lungs and digestive system.
Chest pain can be due to either of these two main reasons:
Heart- related Issues
1. Heart attacks called myocardial infarctions are very common reasons for chest pains. During a heart attack, the blood supply that serves the heart with oxygen is cut off due to plaque build-up in heart arteries causing the death of heart muscles.
- Other reasons for heart attacks are blood clots or torn blood vessels.
- Not all people having a heart attack have symptoms. Usually, people report symptoms like chest pain, upper body pain, nausea, sweating, fatigue, and trouble breathing.
- A heart attack is a serious medical emergency for which immediate care is needed.
2. Angina pectoris is a type of chest pain that results from reduced blood flow to the heart. Low blood flow means your heart doesn’t get enough oxygen. The angina pain is often triggered by physical activity or emotional stress and feels like a vice squeezing your chest or a heavy weight on your chest. It can also spread from your chest to your neck, arms, and shoulders. Other symptoms are fatigue, dizziness and nausea and these normally last up to 15 minutes only.
3. Unstable angina which causes crushing chest pains suddenly and even when you are not doing anything strenuous is a medical emergency as it can lead to a heart attack. This usually shows that your heart, arteries are narrowing alarmingly.
4. Other heat-related reasons for chest pains are-
- Mitral valve narrowing or stenosis
- Heart arrhythmias
- Coronary Artery disease
- Inflammation of heart muscles or pericardium and weakening of the heart muscles.
All of these are emergencies and need immediate medical attention to prevent a fatality.
Not Heart- related:
- Pneumonia is an infection in one or both lungs caused by fungi, bacteria, or viruses. It causes inflammation in your lung’s air sacs and makes them full of pus which makes it difficult to breathe and causes chest pains, amongst other debilitating symptoms.
- Bronchitis is an inflammation of your bronchial tubes. It can be chronic or acute and it can cause a cough with mucus and chest pains.
- Pulmonary embolism is a blood clot that occurs in the lungs. It can go on to damage parts of your lung due to limited blood flow. Apart from this, it can also decrease oxygen levels in the blood and affect other organs.
It can be life-threatening due to permanent lung damage. The most common symptom of a pulmonary embolism is gradual or sudden shortness of breath.
There is also-
- bluish skin tone
- hest pain that extends into your arm, jaw, neck, and shoulder
2. Rib cage inflammation or Costochondritis is also known as Tietze’s syndrome. It is an inflammation of the cartilage in the rib cage. Patients experience chest pain in the upper and middle rib area on either side of the body due to this. The pain can also radiate to the back or the abdomen, getting worse if you move, stretch, or breathe deeply.
3. Food pipe disease or Esophagitis is any inflammation or irritation of the oesophagus, a tube that sends food from your throat down to your stomach.
GERD- This condition occurs when the stomach contents and acids back up into the oesophagus. This causes chest pain that can mimic a heart disease. There may also be oesophagal spasms due to GERD.
With viral fever on the rise it is advisable to prevent yourself against dengue and chikungunya. Dengue is caused by a family of viruses that are transmitted by mosquitoes. It is an acute illness of sudden onset that usually symptoms such as headache, fever, exhaustion, severe muscle and joint pain, swollen lymph nodes, and rash. The presence of fever, rash, and headache is particularly characteristic of dengue.

- Mild bleeding (such a nosebleed, bleeding gums, or easy bruising)
How to diagnose and prevent against dengue?
Diagnosing dengue fever: Blood test to check for the virus or antibodies to it .IgG AND IgM for Dengue Fever.
Prevention against dengue fever:
- Stay away from heavily populated residential areas, if possible.
- Use mosquito repellents, even indoors.
- When outdoors, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants tucked into socks.
- When indoors, use air conditioning if available.
- Make sure window and door screens are secure and free of holes. If sleeping areas are not screened or air conditioned, use mosquito nets.
Role of homeopathy in treating dengue:
Homeopathy treat the person as a whole., it means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individual examination and case analysis which includes the medical history of the patient physical & mental constitution, family history, presenting symptoms, underlying pathology etc. A homeopathic doctor tries to treat more than just the presenting symptoms. The focus is not on curing the disease, but to cure the person who is sick; to restore for health. If a disease pathology is not very advanced homeopathic remedies to give a hope for cure; even in incurable case the quality of life can be greatly improved with homeopathic medicines. Homeopathic medicine help to increase the platelet count and immunity of the patient.
For most people, a prolonged sexual act is one of the most pleasurable acts. However, though not might admit it, there could be multiple reasons due to which this might not be possible. In males especially, premature ejaculation is very common, which does not allow for a prolonged sexual experience. There are multiple causes for this
, some physiological and some psychological.
Given the private nature of the topic, many would not admit to the issue in the first place. Even with the couple, many would be reluctant to discuss it. For many men, close friends might often be the only one who knows about it. Someone else who has had similar problems might suggest a solution. The Internet, given the privacy it offers, could be another forum for discussion and seeking solutions. So what happens is they end up trying solutions from either of these two sources. However, what is important to understand is that each person’s body is built and wired very differently. What worked for a friend or for another person in some other part of the world might not work for you too.
The first point of coping begins with acknowledging the problem. When the ejaculation happens soon after the penetration, well before the partner is satisfied, it is known as premature ejaculation. In some cases, there might not even be adequate stimulation. While it is a matter of self-esteem for the male, for the female it is often an unsatisfactory experience. Knowing some of the possible causes helps understand the problem and then work towards a solution. Some of the most common physiologic and psychologic causes are listed below.
• Performance anxiety: In many cases, especially when with a new partner, premature ejaculation is very common. However, gradually, with familiarity, this improves.
• The prolonged duration between sex episodes: If the person has not engaged in sex for quite a while, there are chances of premature ejaculation.
• Guilt: Past sexual experiences could lead to guilt, which also can cause premature ejaculation.
• Hormonal: Hormonal imbalances also can lead to an inability to sustain and/or maintain an erection.
Most men experience some degree of PE in their early years when they start off their sex lives, but this gradually improves with age, as they learn to control.
Coping with it begins with one round of diagnosis. If there is no serious underlying cause, then simple measures like relaxation techniques and quitting smoking can be used to control ejaculation.
Talking to the partner and easing out stress during the act also can go a long way.
If these do not help, seek counselling or behavioural therapy. You can definitely manage better performance with support of the partner and the counsellor.
