The kidneys are responsible for the elimination of waste from the body. The blood is filtered in the kidneys and all toxic wastes are filtered out and excreted through urine. When this filtration does not happen effectively, a lot of waste can be found in the blood, which affects normal body function.
Kidneys may lose their functioning either due to age, injury, or disease conditions. Whatever the reason, when kidney function is hampered, the body suffers. If there was an injury or congenital problem, it could be unilateral and the non-affected kidney could still do the function. However, if it is infection or old age, normally both kidneys are affected and then replacement should be looked for externally. This is where a kidney transplant comes into the picture.
What is it?
It is a surgery where a healthy, functioning kidney is placed into the body. The donor could be

What to expect during surgery?
Kidney transplant success rates are quite high, and more and more people are opting for transplants as opposed to dialysis.
Severe disorders in one or more kidneys can be debilitating since the quality of life is severely affected. If you suffer from such a condition, you may already be undergoing dialysis. But, have you considered a kidney transplant yet?
Here is a look at some benefits of kidney transplant over dialysis.
1.Increased life expectancy
2. Enhanced quality of life
Not only does severe kidney disorder mean relying on dialysis, but it also imposes other major restrictions in regards to diet and lifestyle. However, kidney transplant is a more permanent solution to the problem. Once the transplant is completed and you recover from the surgery, you can resume a normal life. Additionally, some of the dietary restrictions are also lifted in such a case.
Why dialysis is more common?
Dialysis is more common for the following reasons-
• The kidney to be transplanted may not be readily available. You would be placed on a list and it may take a while for a suitable kidney to arrive. During this period, you would need to undergo dialysis.
• Since dialysis is a minimally invasive procedure, it is often preferred by patients. However, kidney transplantation is better in the long-term.
Elimination of the waste products is the core function performed by our kidneys. Any failure or any infections to the kidney can hamper this process thus leading to a condition where the waste could accumulate in the body. These body fluids can rise to dangerous levels and are often life-threatening. In medical terms, they are known as acute kidney failure. Though there are countless options and medical treatments available in treating them, nothing can beat a homeopathy approach in treating the symptoms. Come, let us take a look at how homeopathy can be used in treating acute renal failure.
Acute kidney renal failure happens over a period of time and can be due to many reasons. Some of them are severe or sudden dehydration, toxic kidney injury due to certain medications, autoimmune kidney diseases, and urinary tract obstruction. Reduced blood flow can also damage the kidneys to a considerable extent, and these can include low blood pressure, internal hemorrhage, injury, surgery or a serious illness. Kidney failures are themselves, not a disease but they lead to many complications that may result in utmost discomfort and life-threatening consequences. The main symptoms of kidney failure can include bloody stools, generalized swelling or fluid retention, fatigue, pain in the ribs, hand tremor, prolonged bleeding, nausea, vomiting and high blood pressure. Urinary discharges can entirely stop or can flow continuously; often with a lot of pain.
In some extreme cases, the degeneration can happen very quickly and can be a medical emergency. Though conventional medicines can help in treating the symptoms, homeopathy offers the most practical solutions available in the market with a long-term focus in mind. Homeopathy uses a simple principle of treating the person as a whole. The complete nature of the individual is understood first before imparting the treatment. The medical history of the patient and his physical and mental constitution are all taken into the picture before the treatment is prescribed. The patient can find himself only talking with the homeopathic doctors initially in the sessions. This is done so that the patient is looked upon as a person - as an individual first and not as an element of the disease. This helps in imparting the best homeopathy treatment depending on the individual's vulnerability and their preferences.
Homeopathy has a high success rate in treating a person with acute renal kidney failure. The biggest advantage is that there are no side effects, unlike conventional treatments. The doctor focuses the treatment plan in such a way that the condition is arrested first and no further degeneration occurs. Then in the second stage, they start to estimate the root cause. A patient can feel the results mostly within a few weeks and if treatment is followed properly, a person can get completely cured within a few months. Many homeopathy medicines would be prescribed during the treatment. However, care should be taken to not exceed the dosage.
Conventional medicines can treat these renal failures. However, the biggest disadvantage is that in more chronic cases they lead to kidney transplantation and other complications. In other words, homeopathy can be your sensible choice of medicine in the long run. This medicine focuses more on the human value of the person rather than the medical condition.
